Foundation Breakfast to honor military service

Posted: Friday, November 7, 2014

The Wednesday, November 12 Huntington University Foundation Breakfast will honor the work of active service men and women as well as veterans. The program will focus on inspirational heroism and God’s provisions in the face of incredible adversity. The speaker will be Captain Chad McGinnis, retired chaplain of the Illinois Army National Guard.

McGinnis is ordained with Open Bible Churches. After 21 years of service, he retired on March 23, 2014. He has served in the Chaplain Corps since July 2003, first as a candidate and in November 2007, he was appointed as a chaplain. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in law enforcement and justice administration from Western Illinois University and a Master of Divinity from Liberty University.

During the breakfast, the Foundation will announce the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award. The award, established in 2002, annually honors an individual or an organization whose life or mission embodies the very principles associated with the mission of the university. The award will be presented to a man, woman or organization giving substance and credence to HU’s beliefs, serving as an effective role model for students and recognized for the tremendous contribution they make to the Huntington community.

The Huntington University Foundation hosts a monthly breakfast meeting, open to all who are interested in learning about current community issues and the people and programs of Huntington University.

The November breakfast will take place in Habecker Dining Commons on Wednesday, November 12, at 7:45 a.m. and will conclude by 9 a.m. Breakfast is $7, but free breakfasts are provided for first-time attendees courtesy of Chris and Janelle Love of Bailey-Love Mortuary.
