William Woods University is one step closer to having Starbucks Coffee on campus next fall. President’s Twenty sponsored an auction March 27 in Tucker Dining Hall to bring Starbuck’s to the Owl’s Nest.
Approximately $2,500 was raised during the auction to provide assistance for the Owl’s Nest, located in the McNutt Campus Center, to serve Starbuck’s Coffee. Auction items were donated—and purchased—by WWU faculty, staff and students, as well as some community members.
“The auction went very well,” Dakota Linsenbardt, chair of the auction, said. “It would not have been possible without all of the support we had coming from William Woods faculty and staff, as well as members of President's Twenty.”
He added, “I am always so impressed with how involved the faculty and staff are in functions such as our auction. It makes occasions such as this run so much smoother.”
President’s Twenty decided to donate the proceeds to the Owl’s Nest at the request of students, who not only like the brew, but are impressed with the global responsibility associated with the American coffeemaker. President’s Twenty is a collegiate honorary service society whose members serve as the university president’s official ambassadors at university events.
