SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – Three couples who are alumni of Lake Superior State University's Student Alumni Involved for Lake State (SAILS) have pledged lead gifts to a new endowment with the LSSU Foundation.
The core group is asking all SAILS alumni to meet a challenge made by Mark Jastorff and his wife Kari to endow a fund that supports the efforts of SAILS. The Jastorffs made a $5,000 match-available gift on the 10th anniversary of the group's founding. Mark Jastorff is the group's founder and advisor; Kari is an honorary SAILS member for her support through the years.
SAILS works closely as student ambassadors with the alumni, admissions, development and president's offices at LSSU.
