A Very Cool Gift

August, 2010

Active living is synonymous with Dick and Betty Hanaway’s lifestyle. The Hanaways, who make a point of thoughtfully living and giving, continued their long-time commitment to PSU and the surrounding community with a leadership gift to support the educational, recreational, and athletic opportunities in the new PSU Ice Arena. In recognition of their gift, the ice sheet at the new arena has been named Hanaway Rink.

For the Hanaways, the rink represents a unique opportunity to share their love of active living with the campus and beyond. As Dick says, “Rarely do you get the chance to share the things you love with the larger community.”

Greetings from University Advancement, where we are eagerly anticipating the community open house for the Plymouth State University Welcome Center and Ice Arena, to be held on Saturday, September 11. Composed of the Eugene and Joan Savage Welcome Center and Hanaway Rink, the building is home to Panther men’s and women’s hockey and the first phase of PSU’s Active Living, Learning, and Wellness (ALLWell) Center, where athletics, academics, and recreation will meet in one dynamic, state-of-the-art complex. Activities and opportunities surrounding the opening of the arena have sparked energy and enthusiasm across campus and beyond, as we have worked collaboratively with community partners to shape celebrations that offer something for everyone.

So many of you have supported PSU over the years, offering your time, talent, and treasure to sustain our mission and to build a strong foundation for growth. I hope you will continue to recognize the critical difference your gifts make, supporting both for PSU’s long-range vision as well as the more immediate needs of students, faculty, and programs.

Please join us on campus this fall for any of our exciting events and help us welcome a new era of excellence in academics and athletics, service to campus and community, and regional partnerships with PSU alumni and friends.

Thank you for being part of Plymouth State University’s future. I look forward to welcoming you to campus this fall.
