Parting gift- Montana State basketball program gets bequeathed $170,000
It was given by Ellen Kreighbaum who was instrumental in starting Women’s Sports at the University. From AP-
Montana State University’s women’s basketball program and the Bobcat Club are the beneficiaries of a $200,000 estate gift.
The MSU Athletics Department announced Friday that the gift was made by Ellen Kreighbaum, a pioneer in Bobcat women’s athletics.
The women’s basketball team will get $170,000, while the remaining $30,000 will go to the Bobcat Club for student-athlete scholarships.
Kreighbaum was instrumental in starting the MSU women’s basketball program in the late 1960s. She also helped establish the women’s athletic department at MSU.
Ellen Kreighbaum’s affiliation with Montana State began in the mid-1960′s. Prior to 1968 the school didn’t have a women’s athletic program.
The Florida High School I attended was bequeathed money to build its own swimming pool. It was still held up in probate at the time of my graduation.
