HIGH POINT, N.C., March 27, 2019 – High Point University President Nido Qubein received the YMCA of High Point’s 2018 Hall of Honor award during the YMCA’s 95th annual meeting on March 26.
“Dr. Qubein values diversity, the community and its people,” said Carlvena Foster, association district vice president for the Carl Chavis Memorial YMCA. “He’s a courageous voice in our city and always empowers us with his message and mantra of faithful courage.”
Qubein was recognized for his demonstrated devotion to the organization and the community the YMCA serves. For nearly 30 years, the Qubein Foundation has helped sponsor the annual Lenten Prayer Breakfast that is held at the YMCA.
“At HPU, we are a God, family and country school and we model those values every day,” said Qubein. “HPU and the YMCA of High Point have been committed to working together through the years to build healthy minds, bodies and spirits within our community. We will continue our partnership to build a better community for today and tomorrow.”
Qubein has been a long-time supporter of the YMCA’s mission, which puts Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
