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.

At our most recent event, Honorary Co-Chairs Drs. Frank (’73) and Sue Moore (’75) led us in honoring Allen and Madeline Tollefson with the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award. That event raised more than $611,000 for student scholarships, bringing the eight-year total for President's Honors to more than $4.5 million.

Highlights of this special evening included 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 2020 President's Honors being held on Friday, April 3.
