DREAMS, Directing Resources to Educate and Mentor Students first started in May of 1995. At that time, the proceeds were ear marked for the Allied Health Center fund drive, supporting the 2.2 million dollar Bute Gym project as well as operating support for the Foundation. Co-chairing the event, along with Director Woody Caspers, was Myron Koppang, VP of Business Affairs at the time, and Jim Sturdevant, Alumni Foundation board member. The first event was held at Prante's on The Green. While DREAMS has evolved and changed with time, the purpose for DREAMS has continued to support our mission.
