Award Of Excellence: Rogers State

Last year, Rogers State Athletics collaborated with RCB Bank to host a new event for students from Claremont Elementary School. Rogers State is Claremont Elementary’s “Partner in Education,” and each year it provides a gift for the students during the holidays. Last year, Rogers State put a new spin on the gift, offering an experience rather than monetary gifts. Claremont Elementary Day took place during a nonconference men’s basketball game in December and served as the holiday party for all the students. Each elementary student received VIP treatment, complete with admission to the game, a VIP badge, Rogers State T‐shirt, hot dog and candy. They were also eligible to win door prizes, including a grand giveaway of a new bike for one girl and one boy.

Five-year-old Jaidyn’s wish came true this past spring when she was told she was going to Disney World. Jaidyn is battling cancer, and her wish to meet Princess Elsa from Frozen will come true thanks to the student-athletes at MSU Moorhead.
