HSU Athletics Department press release:

On Wednesday, Sept. 27 a private meeting about fundraising for HSU Athletics was held with over 20 community members and alumni. In attendance were HSU President Lisa Rossbacher, Athletic Director Duncan Robins, and Vice President for University Advancement Craig Wruck.

President Rossbacher shared the following statement following the meeting:

“I am so impressed by the energy and commitment of this group of community members and alumni, and I applaud their efforts. The group shared their plans for seeking pledges from those who care about HSU Athletics, and I will be helping. I look forward to individual conversations and follow-up in the weeks to come.

“These community members and alumni have set an ambitious and urgent goal of raising $500,000 a year for five years to support Athletics operations. We’re supporting them, we’re helping them, and we’re rooting for them.”
