the live and silent auctions at the event. The remainder
were the result of sponsorships, ticket sales, and additional
scholarship donations.
This year’s dinner honored two local community leaders
with the Chancellor’s Medallion – Donald McMahel and
Michael Naville – and recognized four IU Southeast seniors
as recipients of the Chancellor’s Medallion Leadership
