2013 President's Honors

It was a miraculous night according to Jon North, vice president for university advancement, when more than $450,000 was raised for student scholarships at the 2013 President’s Honors.

“Thanks to all of MNU’s supporters for the impact they are making in helping us raise this unprecedented amount for student scholarships,” North said.

Cook Center’s Bell Arena was literally transformed for the event which 481 attended. Donor support was crucial to the success of the event. The Buchanan family, Tim, Gail, Matt and Lauren, of Wichita served as honorary co-chairs. Presenting sponsors were Legend Senior Living/Tim and Gail Buchanan, and Dr. Larry and Donna McIntire. Platinum, gold, silver, bronze and table sponsors also helped make the gala a success.

Live and silent auctions were an exciting aspect of the evening contributing more than $128,000 to the funds raised. A highlight of the auction was the President’s Scholarship Challenge which raised more than $72,525 directly for student scholarships.

During the event Dr. D. Ray and Elaine Cook, faithful supporters of MNU, were recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award for their outstanding service, dedication and love for MNU.
