Sorini Family Donates to Montana Tech

Stephanie, Giavanna, Marietta, and Isabella Sorini have made a leadership gift to Montana Tech to name a room in the Student Success and Living & Learning Center in honor of Peter M. Sorini, MD.

Dr. Sorini attended local schools and graduated from Butte High School. He attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he graduated with a degree in Latin and Philosophy. He then went on to medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin. His next step was Phoenix, Arizona for an internship where he joined the Neurosurgery Residency Program. Peter returned to Auburn University receiving his Master's Degree in Health Care Administration in May of 2013.

Dr. Sorini loved Butte, loved education, loved life, and loved family. He left us all too soon in February 2016 after an extremely courageous and long-fought battle with a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor.

“Pete was always furthering his education and wanted to make sure others had the same opportunities he did. He believed in giving students from ordinary beginnings an opportunity to lead an extraordinary life,” noted Stephanie Sorini. “Knowing that the Student Success Center will allow students to learn, achieve and thrive makes our family happy and we are pleased to make this donation to Montana Tech. Our family will continue to believe and be Sorini Strong.”

The Montana Tech Student Success and Living Learning Center (SSC) will be a place for students to learn and study, to relax and play. When completed, Montana Tech’s SSC will become the heart of our campus. The 25,000-square-foot facility will complete the student life experience on campus, providing an inspiring environment for students to live, dine, socialize, cultivate valuable leadership skills, and forge lifelong friendships. The SSC will assist Montana Tech in recruiting, retaining, educating, and graduating more problem-solvers, innovators, healers, trailblazers, and leaders.

“Dr. Sorini loved his hometown, loved education and loved Montana Tech,” noted Joe McClafferty, President of the Montana Tech Foundation. “With a heavy heart, we are very thankful to Stephanie, Gia, Marietta, and Bella for this donation as it will help so many Montana Tech student advance their knowledge.”
