MVNU Celebrates Donors, Friends at Annual Recognition Luncheon

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — Mount Vernon Nazarene University recently honored donors and friends at the annual Donor Recognition Luncheon on Saturday, April 1, 2017, in Foster Hall, Ariel Arena on the MVNU campus.

The luncheon recognizes those generously supporting the university through endowment scholarships and annual giving and gave MVNU the opportunity to present its philanthropy awards.

“Our vision requires men and women to come alongside us. It takes a community to “Change the world with the love of Christ.” It encourages us that we have never had to work alone and today we honor alumni and friends for a willingness to join with us,” said MVNU President Henry W. Spaulding II, Ph.D.

This year, MVNU recognized 135 donors and student scholarship recipients who were in attendance.

“The university is grateful for alumni and friends partnering with us in our mission to shape lives through educating the whole person and cultivating Christ-likeness for lifelong learning and service. The acts of generosity from so many help to provide scholarships and support campus initiatives,” said Laura Short, Managing Director of University Development at MVNU.
