Snowboarder Brings Positive Message to Campus

July 08, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

GCU National Tribal Liaison Manager Sandra Hicks poses with professional snowboarder Lonnie Kauk. It seems crazy that a Californian would visit Phoenix in the dead of summer to talk to Native American basketball players about snowboarding. Or does it? In a sense, that unlikely scenario was a perfect fit for the optimistic, anything-is-possible message of 28-year-old Lonnie Kauk on Wednesday evening, July 7, at Antelope Gym on the GCU campus. The occasion was NABI Night, an event held in conjunction with the annual Native American Basketball Invitational in Phoenix. Kauk (pronounced COWK) is a professional snowboarder who looks the part with his stringy hair, backward cap and loose-fitting clothes. But those judging him by his gear and laid-back vibe are in for a surprise. “I put my heart and my Native spirit into all of this,” says Kauk, who is from Yosemite Valley, Calif., and is of Ahwahneechee descent. “I found something I love to do, and I’m very passionate about it. “If you’ve got Native blood and it’s pumping through you, you’ve got to be proud of that. That can take you places.” For Kauk, some of those places are spectacular and can be seen in snowboarding films featuring […]

U.S. Senators McCain, Brown Visit GCU

March 08, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

The Phoenix campus of Grand Canyon University took center stage on Friday, March 5, for a town hall with U.S. Senators John McCain of Arizona and Scott Brown of Massachusetts. McCain, the Republican Party’s presidential nominee in 2008, is seeking re-election in 2010 to a fifth term in the Senate. His representatives approached the university about serving as the site for the event, which attracted a crowd of 1,500 to Antelope Gymnasium for remarks by the two lawmakers on issues such as jobs, health care, federal spending and national defense. Brown, the newly elected senator to the seat of the late Edward M. Kennedy, sought and received McCain’s support in his recent campaign. His upset victory in January made him the first Republican since 1972 to be elected to the Senate from Massachusetts. “It was the election heard around the world,” McCain said of Brown’s triumph. Media outlets such as NBC News, the Boston Globe and the Associated Press dispatched reporters, production people and satellite trucks to cover the event at GCU, along with all four of the major television stations from metropolitan Phoenix. Kelly O’Donnell of “The NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” reported live from the campus promenade […]
