Million Dollar Donation to UVM Will Improve Athletic Facilities


A generous donation made by a Catamount couple.
University of Vermont grads Bill and Laurie Shean made a million dollar donation, to renovate and expand the athletic facilities on campus.

The couple have been long time supporters.

The Shean’s donation will help make way for a new facility for the UVM men’s and women’s basketball teams. It will also help upgrade Gutterson Fieldhouse and expand the health and wellness complex to five times its current space.

“We’re thrilled!” Said UVM  Athletic Director Jeff Schulman. “This is a project that we’ve been talking about for quite some time and we really feel like we’ve got the right  concept now. It fits who we are at the University of Vermont and it fits the State of Vermont and its great to see Bill and Laurie supporting us.”

The donation will be used for drawing up the architectural plans for the expansion and to evaluate campus grounds.
