Dr. Nick and Judy DiGiovine have donated $125,000 to Montana Tech’s next capital project, the Student Success Center (SSC). A collaboration room inside the facility will be named after the DiGiovines.
The Montana Tech SSC will become the heart of campus. When completed, the 25,000-square-foot facility will complete the student life experience on campus, providing an inspiring environment for students to live, dine, socialize and cultivate valuable leadership skills. It will boost Montana Tech’s residential capacity from 289 beds to 455 beds, shaping memories and forging lifelong friendships.
“Judy and I have been long time supporters of Montana Tech,” noted Dr. Nick DiGiovine. “It is our privilege to support the Montana Tech Student Success Center. The Student Success Center will further Tech’s efforts to recruit and retain the best students. The Student Success Center is a manifestation of Tech’s continued commitment to growth, diversity and excellence. Judy and I firmly believe that Montana Tech is the most critical economic and cultural pillar of our community. We believe the efforts and successes of Montana Tech will directly and significantly benefit Butte and Southwest Montana.”
Dr. Nick DiGiovine is an orthopedic surgeon with Montana Orthopedics. Judy is a nurse practitioner with St. James Healthcare’s Wound Clinic. The DiGiovines are tremendous supporters of Montana Tech. Nick currently serves on the Montana Tech Foundation Board of Directors and serves as the team physician for Oredigger athletics.
“Nick and Judy are individuals who turn a town into a community,” noted Joe McClafferty, president of the Montana Tech Foundation. “Their constant belief and passion for Montana Tech has helped Montana Tech become a pillar of strength in our community. This very generous gift to the Student Success Center will help Montana Tech advance our strategic priorities providing a place on campus where our students can learn, connect, lead and achieve.”
McClafferty added, “On behalf of our entire university, I want to thank the DiGiovines for their impactful gift that will create ripples of learning for generations to come.”
