BILLINGS – An MSU Billings alumnus stepped up with a $500,000 gift for the proposed Yellowstone Allied Health and Science Building.

In a surprise announcement at the annual Wine and Food Festival on the college campus Saturday, Carl Ueland and his wife Barbara announced their donation.

Ueland said he went to the school in the early 70’s and studied biology in the same building being used today.

MSUB is looking to raise $5 million for the project. With the gift from the Ueland’s the amount raised stands at $4.2 million.
