President's Honors 2014

The President’s Honors, MNU's premier annual fundraising event raised more than $563,000, surpassing this year's goal by more than $50,000. Since the university began holding the gala three years ago more than $1,350,000 has been raised for scholarships. 

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback participated in the event by video to congratulate Coach Rocky Lamar on his induction in the NAIA Hall of Fame. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer attended. A basketball signed by the men’s 2014 team and Coach Lamar was a popular auction item. 

Several unusual donated items brought high bids. Long-time supporter and food processing-industry giant Larry Doskocil donated a 4-foot long pepperoni which sold for $1,000. A 1957 Lincoln from long-time MNU friends, brought $10,000. All-expense paid trips accompanying Heart to Heart International to Haiti for humanitarian relief brought $13,000.
