The Grand Hotel, downtown Mount Vernon, has joined the Championship Drive with MVNU Athletics. This partnership is a natural fit. "The Grand" and Mount Vernon Nazarene University already enjoy an existing relationship beneficial to both. Set in downtown Mount Vernon, The Grand Hotel offers guests upscale accommodations provided by a friendly and professional staff eager to serve family and friends visiting the area.
It didn't take long for The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel to see the value in becoming a partner with MVNU Athletics. Whether it be for returning alumni, visiting prospective students and families or other individuals wanting to experience the combined history and luxury "The Grand" offers, Lynda Ciminello-Director of Sales and Marketing was sold on the idea. "When Paul (McNeal) and Aaron (Quinn) reached out to us with this partnership initiative, I knew right away it was something we wanted to be a part of".
MVNU Athletics Championship Drive was created to help fund the additional costs associated with sending student-athletes to the national tournament stage. "The last thing we want our student-athletes to worry about at MVNU is how they will be able to afford the expense of participating at a national level", said Aaron Quinn - MVNU Athletic Director. "Lynda and the Staff at The Grand are phenomenal people and MVNU Athletics is proud to have them as a partner".
