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.

Honorary Co-Chairs Drs. Frank (’73) and Sue Moore (’75) lead us in honoring Allen and Madeline Tollefson with the 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award. The 2018 event raised more than $690,000 for student scholarships, bringing the seven-year total for President's Honors to more than $3.9 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 2019 President's Honors being held on Friday, April 12.
