Welcome to the Utah Chapter! We have been a formal Alumni Chapter since 2008 and active in the Salt Lake City area even longer. We meet at least 4 times each year providing an opportunity for Montana Tech Alumni to network, meet each other's families, and often support Montana Tech Athletics. We take pride in filling the Westminster College gymnasium whenever an Oredigger Team comes to town for conference play. We also proudly wear our Montana Tech green each year for the Salt Lake City St. Patrick's Day Parade. Montana Tech has had an entry for several years and we always get a great reaction from the crowds as we march and chant "Send your kids to Tech" along the route.
In addition to the social gatherings, the Utah Chapter's long-term objective is to evaluate, establish, fund, and sustain over time a scholarship to Montana Tech for a Utah student. There are over 100 known Alumni in the Salt Lake City area in various industries. Many are associated with mining, whether directly or as a service provider, but just as many are employed by other industries and top-tier Utah companies. We feel there are many Utah high school students that would choose Montana Tech if exposed to our great programs and campus. These students could get their degrees at Montana Tech and then come back to Utah where there are endless job opportunities. We have recently helped organize Montana Tech staff visits at local high schools and companies and look forward to making more progress in 2012.
If you live in Utah, or nearby, we would love to have you join us in our Chapter Activities. Contact us today so we can add you to our contact list and make sure you get invitations for upcoming events.
