Minnesota State College Southeast has dedicated a plaque in the college's Winona campus welding lab. The plaque is in honor of Winona residents Don and Donna Peterson.
College President Dr. Dorothy Duran says Don Peterson has given countless hours of service to MSC Southeast Foundation, funded student scholarships, and donated equipment and supplies from his business, Mississippi Welders Supply. His wife, Donna Peterson, is also a lifelong supporter of education. She taught home economics for many years and continued pursuing her love of education by substitute teaching and volunteering for numerous organizations.
Quoting from the text of the plaque, Dean of Trade And Technology Travis Thul said, "Together, Don and Donna exemplify personal commitment to the community. We thank them for their exceptional support of Minnesota State College Southeast."
