Alumnus Kasey Powers, ’95 and ’97 is the father of an EOU student-athlete. 

“My family supports EOU athletics and the education program,” he said. “Go, Mounties!” 

EOU Alumni Association President Adriana DalSoglio, ’06 and ’08, supports EOU Foundation Scholarships. Meanwhile, John, ’84, and Holly, ’89, Kerfoot support EOU athletics and the EOU Alumni Association, “for future Mountaineers like our grandkids.” Jennifer Teeter, ’95 and ’02, also gives back to her alma mater. 

“I am a double graduate of Eastern, and the proud mom of a recent EOU/OHSU nursing graduate, and I support EOU athletics,” she said.

Mike, ’74, and Sue, ’76, Daugherty are long-time supporters of the EOU Foundation, the EOU Alumni Association, and the Mountaineer Athletic Association (MAA).  

“We believe it is vital to support EOU students with scholarship opportunities, so we provide assistance to students through athletic scholarships via the MAA, fund a Student Engagement Scholarship, and a Science Scholarship annually,” Mike said.
