Media report on UMaine athletic facility naming gift

The Portland Press Herald, Bangor Daily News and WABI (Channel 5 in Bangor) reported that University of Maine alumni Phillip and Susan Morse have committed $10 million for naming rights to the new basketball arena planned for the campus in Orono. Phillip and Susan Morse, 1964 graduates of the school, have been significant donors to UMaine athletics over the last 25 years. “The generous support of Phillip and Susan Morse has made a lasting difference on the UMaine student experience and what Maine’s only Division I athletics program offers communities and fans. We appreciate their leadership and vision that will impact generations at their alma mater,” said President Joan Ferrini-Mundy. Yahoo News shared the PPH report.
