MINNEAPOLIS (May 23, 2014) – Globe University and Minnesota School of Business have partnered with the Saint Paul Saints for the 2014 baseball season to designate Globe University-Minnesota School of Business Family & Fun nights in appreciation of students’ and employees’ dedication and commitment to the Colleges.
“Our students and employees are the foundation of everything we do,” says Jeff Myhre, Chief Executive Officer of Globe University and Minnesota School of Business. “They exemplify the Colleges’ We Care mission, from our faculty members who are transforming the classroom experience with innovative technology, to our students who’ve entrusted us to provide them with a top-tier education. The Family & Fun nights with the Saint Paul Saints are just a small token of our appreciation.”
The partnership kicks off Saturday, May 24, 2014, with the Saint Paul Saints’ annual Military Appreciation night. Globe University and Minnesota School of Business and affiliate schools proudly serve approximately 1,200 military students and employ 200 military-affiliated personnel. The Colleges provide dedicated support services to military students and demonstrate our appreciation for the contributions of servicemembers and their families by providing support toward the cost of education through numerous scholarships. Globe University and Minnesota School of Business have also received national recognition for the unwavering support of military. Globe University and Minnesota School of Business were named by Military Times as a 2014 Best for Vets college, and for the sixth consecutive year the Colleges were named on the 2014 list of top military-friendly schools by Military Advanced Education. The Saints have kindly gifted hundreds of tickets to the May 24 game to our military-affiliated students and employees.
“We see no better way to kick off this wonderful partnership than on Memorial weekend, which also gives us the opportunity to honor our military-affiliated students and employees with the gracious gift from the Saint Paul Saints,” says Jeanne Herrmann, Chief Operating Officer for Globe University and Minnesota School of Business. “We are privileged to have such dedicated and hardworking students and employees –and we’re happy to have the opportunity to say thank you in this way.”
