President's Honors | April 13, 2018
Launched in 2012, President’s Honors has quickly become MNU’s premier event of the year and a vital source of support for the university.
President’s Honors is first and foremost a celebration — of God’s faithfulness, of donor generosity, and of all that makes MidAmerica Nazarene University’s mission worthy of unwavering, sacrificial support.
The 2017 President's Honors raised nearly $710,000 for student scholarships, bringing our six-year total to more than $3.2 million through event sponsorships, auction purchases and ticket sales.
Highlights of this special evening include an elegant dinner, thrilling live and silent auctions, unique entertainment, and celebrations of generosity. Alumni and friends join corporate sponsors and community partners to reflect and celebrate the importance of MNU's mission and the difference our students are making around the world.
Join us for the 2018 President's Honors being held on Friday, April 13.
This year, we will be honoring Dr. Larry and Donna McIntire with the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. McIntire served faithfully as Chairman of MNU’s Board of Trustees for many years and has generously supported the university over the years. He and Donna were instrumental in founding the extension campus of the Kansas City University of Medicine and Bioscience in their hometown of Joplin, Missouri and creating an innovative partnership with MNU to dual-enroll students and accelerate their medical school experience. Donna was a school teacher before serving as the business administrator for their medical practice for nearly 20 years.
The Honorary Co-Chairs for the 2018 will be Ervin (’81) and Fran Cash. Ervin is the CEO of SloanLED and a member of MNU’s Board of Trustees. Fran recently retired after a career as a senior software engineer at Siemens. They currently reside in Santa Barbara, California.
