Why I Give

Mike Brooks -- As an undergrad, athletics gave me a tremendous way to learn about values, work ethic, and self-worth. My gift to the turf field will help provide an even better Cazenovia experience for future generations -- as the lessons learned on the playing field and in the classroom will give these students a formula for success.
