The Varsity Club is pleased to introduce the six members of the "For the Glory of Old IU" Capital Campaign Leadership Council. These six national chairs have a loyal association with Indiana University and IU Athletics. With their strong philanthropic and volunteer leadership experiences, they are providing invaluable assistance to Rick Greenspan, Director of Athletics, and Scott Dolson, Director of the Varsity Club, in making campaign-related decisions.
STEVE HENKE received both his undergrad and law degrees from IU. He passed his love for the Hoosiers onto his daughter, Betsy, who just graduated in 2007, and his son, Brad, who is currently a sophomore on the IU baseball team. Steve is a Past President of the Varsity Club National Board, as well. He resides in Carmel, IN with his wife, Kathy, and is in real estate development.
PHYLLIS MCCULLOUGH is our second member of the Leadership Council. She has previously served the Varsity Club as its National Board president. Though not an IU graduate, no one can question her loyalty to this university. She was awarded the Bill Orwig Medal in 1994, which recognizes a non-alumnus who has made unique and significant contributions to IU's athletic department. Professionally, Phyllis serves Cook Incorporated as its Chairwoman of the Board. She and her husband, Jerry, live in Naples, FL.
NED PFAU is a long-time donor to Indiana University and has held a variety of leadership posts for the IU Foundation, the Varsity Club, and the IU Alumni Association. He owns and operates his family business, George Pfau's Sons Company, Inc, out of Jeffersonville, IN. Ned's energy and enthusiasm about IU Athletics is infectious!
DR. LARRY RINK is a pioneer in cardiac medicine. He has been involved in numerous cardiac drug studies on a national scale, but continues to serve the Bloomington community as a Chairman, President & CEO, and Cardiologist at Internal Medicine Associates (IMA). After completing his medical degree, residency, and fellowship at IU, Dr. Rink continued to be a part of the IU family by serving the men's basketball team as a team physician since 1978. The Varsity Club thanks Dr. Rink's wife, Ellie, for sharing him with us.
After coaching the IU men's soccer teams for 41 years and winning 6 NCAA Championships, Coach JERRY YEAGLEY is now retired and resides Bloomington, IN with his wife, Marilyn. He is excited about his Leadership Council role as it gives him the opportunity to give back to IU for its long-time support of him as a coach.
DICK JOHNSON, an avid IU basketball fan, has ties to the Athletic Department, as well as the IU Foundation, the Jacobs School of Music, and the Kelley School of Business. Actually, the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Kelley School is named for the Johnson family, which operations Johnson Ventures, Inc out of Columbus, IN. When Dick has free time, he enjoys his Brown County cabin with his wife, Ruth.
The IU Varsity Club thanks the Leadership Council for all they have done already for Indiana University and IU Athletics and all they will do as we continue our "For the Glory of Old IU" Capital Campaign.
