Sara Venn, who graduated in the Dansville Class of 1999, along with her husband, Dustin Ruh, have created an endowment to fund a scholarship for the School of Materials Engineering. The proceeds of this endowment helps undergraduates with financial obligations associated with studying abroad.
Sara and her husband have both experienced international travel and business abroad, which fueled their passion for starting this endowment, as they feel there is a a need to expose students to cultures outside of North America.
According to the Purdue Alumni web article that was shared, Venn participated in EPICS and held multiple roles with Purdue Student Government (PSG), including serving as student body vice president in 2003. Ruh participated in a variety of organizations including PSG, Old Masters, President’s Council, and selection into Mortar Board in 2002.
