Normandale Annual Report 2012-2013
  • Retired faculty member Jaya Premanand made a significant gift in memory of her late husband, Visvanatha (Prem). The generous donation helped students attend a national theatre festival, host a Theatre Department outreach event, provide additional staging, and honor Prem on a plaque outside the newly named Dr. V. Premanand Theatre and Concert Hall.

  • The Foundation has also set up a designated fund account for donations in memory of Dr. Russell Smiley, a popular Normandale instructor who was internationally recognized for his work in Tai Chi. Donors can designate their gifts to the Russ Smiley Scholarship Fund or Russ Smiley Sacred Space Fund, which will create a place of reflection on the Normandale campus.
