Donor to match gifts until May 12

Friday, April 26, 2013 - 8:43am

2012 Appalachian Honorary Alumnus Michael Steinback, Chair of Appalachian's Board of Trustees, is also the proud parent of four children – three of whom are graduates of Appalachian State University. In their honor, and in honor of the thousands of other students who proudly call themselves Mountaineers, Michael has committed $40,000 to match gifts made by Spring 2013 commencement on May 12. Every Mountaineer's gift makes a difference on our campus –now your gift can go twice as far!

"Appalachian has given my family so much. Now it is time to give back." - Michael Steinback
