Students, faculty and staff gathered to dedicate the new Mary Ann and Harold Perper Intramural Field

This gift is one of many by Mary Ann and the late Harold Perper that has made an impact on the quality of campus life over the past 25 years.

Mrs. Perper was honored with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and speeches by President Kevin M. Ross and students Evan Hargrove, class of ’17, and Jordyn Turner, class of ’16.

“The Perpers’ generosity impacts every student who steps foot on our campus, and it’s an honor to have their name on our intramural field,” said Ross. “We are grateful for Mary Ann’s continued and extraordinary commitment to enhancing students’ lives on campus.”

The new intramural field features upgrades such as a scoreboard and lights that allow Lynn’s Fighting Knights and club sports teams to practice and compete day and night.

Mrs. Perper’s generous gift supports the pursuit of master plan Lynn 2020, which includes building new residence halls in the space the former intramural field occupied.

The soon-to-be-built Mary Ann and Harold Residence Center also supports that university initiative.
