Not only is this event open to the community, but the University is underwriting any event costs to make this event free, though tickets are required.

“This community has been so good to us,” said Emberton, “this is one way that we can give a gift back to Huntington. We are so proud of the heritage of Christian higher education in Huntington, Indiana, and we will continue to do our part to foster growth and innovation in this region.”
