Mount Vernon, Ind. – United Way of Posey County will launch the 2020 fundraising campaign during a virtual kickoff celebration on Monday, August 17 at 6 p.m.
Stan Gouard, the head coach of the USI’s men’s basketball team, will speak on the importance of supporting the United Way and invite local community members to give during the Posey County campaign, which will last through December 4, 2020.
After spending the past 12 years as the head coach of Great Lakes Valley Conference rival Indianapolis, USI alum and national champion Stan Gouard was named the new head coach of the Eagles. Stan graduated from USI in 1996 and was a fan favorite during his playing days there. He was a member of the 1995 NCAA Division II championship team and was a two-time NABC Division II Player of the Year. He still ranks high in USI’s record books as he’s the program’s fourth-leading scorer (1,619) and fifth-leading rebounder (702) and the all-time leader in steals (175).
“We’re excited to bring awareness to our fundraising campaign and discuss how giving to the United Way makes a real impact on our family, friends and neighbors in Posey County,” said Keely Winiger, Executive Director of the United Way of Posey County. “This will be a fun way to connect with the public, show them how the United Way is working to improve the quality of life in our county and give away some prizes to a handful of participants at the end of the meeting.”
