The Agricultural Studies Program at Huntington University honors Dale and Elaine Haupert. Why? Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president of HU, says it best: 

“The Hauperts passionately support the mission of Huntington University and have made strong commitments to ensure the future of all students through their generosity. Their deep commitment to investing in youth and the university has resulted in numerous students receiving a high-quality, Christ-centered education.”
