In addition, the President and First Lady are serving as honorary campaign chairs for the Hardin County United Way campaign.

The United Way of Hardin County kicked off its annual campaign on September 15.  This year’s goal is $220,000 to support 20 community agencies.

Matthew Phillips, Associate Professor of Accounting and a member of the United Way board, is this year’s campaign chair for ONU.  Contact Matt at ext. 2072 or at his Dicke Hall office #221.  Joining Matt as co-chair on the campaign team this year is Nicolle Merkel from the Office of Academic Affairs, who also serves on the United Way board.  

Campaign information has been sent via campus mail and we look forward to the continued wonderful support of those in the ONU family.  Pledge cards may be returned c/o Matthew Phillips, Dicke Hall #221.

Thank you for your consideration and Live United!
