Apple is a great supporter of UE
One of the most active supporters to the University of Evansville and the Athletics Department has been recognized for his efforts as Don Apple was given one of the most prestigious awards handed out annually at UE.
The Heart of UE Award is given to honor an individual who embodies the spirit of the University of Evansville through philanthropy, volunteerism, and scholarship. Acting as the centermost livelihood of the university, this award celebrates an individual that believes in and exemplifies the vision and core purpose of the University of Evansville.
“Don Apple’s love for his alma mater and amazing dedication to volunteering and philanthropy has and continues to support and enhance countless number of Aces students. UE Athletics is in debt to his dedication,” said Lance Wilkerson, UE’s Senior Associate Athletic Director.
A more than deserving candidate, Apple has been an incredible ambassador for his alma mater and community. The president of the Purple Aces Club has served three different terms that have spanned over two decades. His efforts in that position have helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for UE student-athlete scholarships.
His support has spanned over all of the Purple Aces programs. From helping at cross country to spotting at the women’s golf tournament to passing out information at the Ford Center before basketball games, his contributions have been endless.
