The Mayville State University Student Senate, along with other campus organizations, sponsored a pancake breakfast and silent auction to raise funds for Mayville State University employee Sandy Popiela, who is battling cancer. About 160 people attended the benefit, held April 6 at the Mayville Armory, and proceeds amounted to $3,381.
“Ms. Sandy,” as Popiela is affectionately known, has been a mainstay in the university snack bar. Her smiling face and welcoming disposition have made her a beloved member of the campus community.Caption for photo:Mayville State Student Senate President Tisha Lopez (left) presents a check to Goose River Bank employee Robbie Tangen (center) for deposit in the Sandy Popeila Benefit Fund.
