Northwest University’s Eagle Hall of Fame Benefit Was a Night to Remember
With 300 guests in attendance, Northwest University’s Sixth Annual Eagle Hall of Fame Benefit on Thursday, March 31, 2016 was a night to remember. The evening began with a silent auction featuring items such as autographed sports memorabilia, dinner packages, overnight stays, and more. Following the silent auction, guests enjoyed a catered dinner, the Hall of Fame induction, a live auction, and a powerful message from special guest and former NFL quarterback Brock Huard.
The Hall of Fame program, emceed by Craig and Rachel Terrill, included an introduction from Northwest’s Assistant Athletic Director John Van Dyke. Student Athletes of the Year Jordan Asher (women’s basketball) and Jonathan Ferguson (cross country and track & field) were honored, and Phil Olson was inducted into the Northwest University Hall of Fame. Each of these individuals spoke about the special impact that the University’s coaches and teammates have had on their lives and their faith.
Special guest Brock Huard closed out the evening with a message titled “Seek and He Will Surround,” followed by a time for Q&A. As a quarterback, Huard played in college for the University of Washington Huskies and professionally for the Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts. He told stories from his childhood, college, and professional years, which touched on how God surrounds us with His presence and provision when we seek Him.
“Seek those that love the Lord, seek those you’re like minded with, seek those you can lock arms with, and trust me on this: He will surround you.” – Brock Huard
The Sixth Annual Eagle Hall of Fame Benefit supported scholarships for student athletes at Northwest University. We are incredibly thankful for the sponsors and guests who made the evening possible. Because of their support, we can continue to provide a Christ-centered education to gifted athletes.
