Unknown donor helps University of Missouri fundraising rebound from bad months - Columbia Daily Tribune

A large pledge that the University of Missouri is not ready to reveal pushed the campus fundraising total for February to $21.9 million, putting the campus on track for its best year ever soliciting private support, Vice Chancellor of University Advancement Tom Hiles said Thursday.

Through the end of February, MU recorded $115 million in new donations and pledges during the current year for its "Mizzou: Our Time to Lead" capital campaign, $30 million more than through the same period a year earlier. At the end of January, the year-to-date total was $17 million ahead of fiscal 2015.

It’s like I was rushing into things, trying to get them over with." Brothers’ 4.89-second 40-yard dash ranked 27th of 31 linebackers who ran at the combine. His 110-inch broad jump tied for 30th out of 32. His 28½-inch vertical jump tied for 29th out of 32.

"There were four or five offensive line coaches there and they wanted to see how Connor and I move," Boehm said. "They put us through the wringer and worked our (butts) off today. It was a good time. They wanted to see two guys go after for 20 minutes straight, but I enjoyed it and it was a good time."
