The Missouri State University men’s and women’s golf teams will be the recipients of a significant gift, courtesy of Pam and Bernie Burrier, the MSU Foundation announced today.
The gift is an endowment for both programs and will be used to support the overall budgets of the teams. The Burriers have previously established endowed scholarships for men’s and women’s golf.
“We can’t thank Bernie and Pam enough for stepping up and supporting our program time and again,” said MSU women’s golf head coach Kevin Kane. “They’re always asking what they can do to help. Their support and friendship mean more than they will ever know.”
“This is truly a remarkable gift to the golf programs,” said MSU men’s golf head coach Neal Stafford. “Bernie and Pam’s generosity, encouragement, support and most importantly friendship over the years have been absolutely amazing. Our golf programs are filled with tradition, and the Burrier’s gift will make a huge impact on the team for many years to come!”
