This week's Donor of the Week is a couple who have been a part of Big Green and Marshall for many years. Donna and John Underwood of Huntington have been partners with Marhsall athletics for more than 20 years and have not only made financial contributions but volunteered their time to several sport booster clubs. They have directed several fund raising efforts for the Herd, especially in women's basketball.
Our thanks go out to Donna and John for all they have done for the Big Green, our coaches and student-athletes. They are members of the Marshall family that truly serve as role models for all of us on how to support both athletics and academics!
College: Marshall College (University)
Ohio University: Masters in Business
Favorite Marshall Player: Tynikki Crook (Women's Basketball) Donna's pick because of Ty's dedication, work ethic and spirit.
John chose George Stone because he was a great shooter; "wish we had a 3 point line when he played."
Favorite Marshall Moment: Winning football 1AA Championship for the 1st time.
Why we give to the Big Green: To help support Marshall student-athletes.
