The college held its 125th anniversary gala and capital campaign kickoff on June 16 at the Campus Club in Minneapolis.

Other presenters shared their “Impactful Generosity” stories, including Dee Weaver and Anjoli Punjabi who talked about student success; Philip Portoghese and Carrie Haskell-Luevano who addressed faculty innovation; and Bruce Paddock and Randy Seifert who talked about advancing practice.

Welage also officially launched the college’s campaign, “Driven: A Prescription for Health.” Campaign co-chairs Steve and Wendy Simenson ended the program with a champagne toast to the college’s future.
