SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – Members of Student Alumni Involved for Lake State (SAILS) treated staff who have made a difference in their time at the University to lunch recently.

The first Golden Anchor Luncheon brought SAILS and staff together to celebrate LSSU. SAILS members were each encouraged to invite the one person at Lake State who had made the biggest difference in the year. Those persons were invited to a Sunday luncheon and presented with a certificate of appreciation and a golden anchor lapel pin.

"One of the things that SAILS believes in is the power of the individual to make a real difference in the life of Lake Superior State University," said Tiffany Jastorff, chair person for the student ambassador organization. "This is one way for us to say thank you."

Nicole Craven, a junior from Freeport, chaired the event.

"Things went well for a first-time effort," she said. "We're already working on improving next year's program."

Those honored were: Randall Suggitt, Terry Heyns, Morrie Walworth, Colleen Kinghorn, Mark and Kari Jastorff, Steve Yanni, Fern Spencer, Jim Madden, Sue Fitzpatrick, Steve Person, Judy Westrick, David Szlag, Tom Allan, Jason Swedene, Darold Borowiak, Holly Johnson, Suzette Olson, Kevin Buie and Daretha Huntz.

SAILS funded the program with proceeds from its fundraising programs that include the annual tuition raffle, welcome and exam kits and personal contributions.
