Healthy appreciation: Sandmires donate $1m to pre-med scholarships

Reception honors Dr. Herbert and Crystal SandmireUW-Green Bay recognized its most faithful donors Dec. 9 with an on-campus reception honoring Dr. Herbert and Crystal Sandmire and their $1 million capstone gift endowing additional scholarships for students pursuing careers in medicine or related fields. The gathering in the Laboratory Sciences Building was hosted by Chancellor Gary L. Miller and his wife, Georgia.

The Sandmires’ latest and largest gift to the Herbert F. and Crystal J. Sandmire Scholarship will create dozens of additional scholarships annually, helping more pre-med and other students prepare to meet a critical regional need. UW-Green Bay records identify the Sandmires as having the longest uninterrupted string of annual giving — 46 years — among the thousands of private individuals who have supported the University and its students throughout the years. For more on the million-dollar gift and what it will mean for students and the region, see the news release.

Among those speaking during the brief program were Herb Sandmire, Chancellor Miller, student Julia Shariff, faculty member Craig Hanke and Assistant Chancellor Jeanne Stangel.
