Wendy's in Mount Vernon has agreed to partner with MVNU Athletics as part of the Championship Drive initiated by the Athletic Department. This partnership will provide MVNU student-athletes who earn a chance to compete at a national level tournament the necessary travel, equipment and support to experience a once in a lifetime event.
As part of MVNUNITED, the Athletic Department has been reaching out to local community businesses with an emphasis on equal partnership for both. Although this initiative is in its' infancy, there has been an overwhelmingly, positive response from the surrounding communities. Joe Curran, owner of the Wendy's in Mount Vernon, was one of the first to embrace the partnership opportunity with MVNU Athletics. Mr. Curran, a long time supporter of Knox County believes partnering with "The Naz" is beneficial to both Wendy's and MVNU.
Paul McNeal - MVNU Coordinator for Athletic Department Development spearheaded the conversations and subsequent one-year partnership. "MVNU Athletics is honored and thrilled to have Wendy's be a part of our Championship Drive. We are blessed to have so many wonderful business owners in our surrounding community willing to reach out and be a part of MVNUNITED".
