Megan A. BugbeeCampus gratitude extends to the sports arena in this "Give Thanks" installment, as Wildcat student-athlete Megan A. Bugbee shares appreciation for those whose philanthropy has benefited her – in and out of the classroom.

Bugbee, from Geneseo, New York, was recruited as a member of the Penn College women's soccer team and has found academic satisfaction as a building science and sustainable design: architectural technology concentration student. Not surprising, considering that the ingredients for success are the same in both worlds: "a level of passion (and) hard work," whether hitting the books or moving the ball.

Writing for the college's blog as Thanksgiving approaches, the accomplished senior cited the enhancements she and her teammates have experienced as a result of financial benefactors.

“During my time as a student-athlete, UPMC Field was built and several other facility improvements were completed,” Bugbee said in a Q&A. "Donor support is very much appreciated, and I am grateful for our Wildcat Club members who contribute to help improve our programs.”
