Jim Unke Memorial Scholarship

Martin Luther College’s long-time Athletic Director, Jim Unke, passed away on July 30, 2022. Anyone who knew Jim knew that he cared deeply about athletics at MLC, but his passion for sports at the college was singularly focused on assisting in the growth and development of future pastors, teachers, and staff ministers. The Jim Unke Memorial Scholarship will recognize Jim’s legacy of gospel ministry at MLC, and it will carry forward Jim’s legacy of gospel ministry by financially supporting the training of future pastors, teachers, and staff ministers at MLC. We are seeking to raise $25,000 over 25 days in honor of Jim’s 25 years of service to MLC as Athletic Director. Please partner with us through the “25-25-25 Campaign” in carrying forward Jim’s ministry impact at MLC for generations to come through the establishment of the Jim Unke Memorial Scholarship!
