Forest and Olivia Bommarito '03 '05
Heritage Society members Forest and Olivia Bommarito met at Mines where they earned their BS and ME degrees in petroleum engineering in the same years (2003 and 2005, respectively). Forest and Olivia set a great example for future Mines supporters and alums.
They consistently support Mines a generous level every year through the President's Council. They established the Bommarito Endowed Scholarship Fund in 2012 to provide financial support to under graduate petroleum engineering students. Their estate gifts will add to their scholarship fund. As members of the Heritage Society, they provide inspiration to those who are considering putting Mines in their will.
"Mines is where our relationship began, and we wanted to ensure it was incorporated into our long-term financial plans. This was another way, in addition to creating the endowed scholarship, that we could provide support to future Mines students."
