Columbia College recognizes YouZeum benefactors

Friday, January 20, 2012 | 12:19 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — Columbia College is honoring YouZeum benefactors with an invitation to become members of the school's President's Society.

Benefactors to the city's former health and science museum will be recognized during an announcement scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday at Columbia College's Dulany Hall. They will be formally inducted at the annual President's Society dinner, held in the fall.

"Their philanthropic commitment is worthy of our great esteem, and we hope to create a fitting tribute for them through this partnership," Gerald Brouder, president of Columbia College, said in a press release.

After the YouZeum closed in October 2010, Columbia College bought the building and renamed it Federal Hall —  a reference to the building's days as a federal post office. It now houses the school's online and nursing programs, according to a previous Missourian article.

The President's Society grants lifetime membership to those who have made contributions of $10,000 or more in cash, scholarship funds, securities or real property.
