Monday afternoon the Billings Chamber Board and Big Sky Economic Development EDA/EDC Boards met in a joint session to hear from MSUB Foundation CEO, Bill Kennedy. Kennedy gave an update on the fundraising efforts for the Yellowstone Science & Allied Health Building, as well as unveiled a new “laser focused” communications campaign to accelerate the fundraising and progress to a summer ground breaking. The foundation needs to raise a little over 6 million to accomplish that goal. Part of those funds may come from the Bonding Bill at the legislature for capital projects through the state. All boards agreed to the importance of MSU Billings for the success of the community and as an economic driver, employer and workforce pipeline.
