Marshall University pride was in evidence in the Mid Ohio Valley tonight
Area alumni of the Green and White were out in full force for the annual Marshall scholarship and fund raising dinner at the Grand Pointe Center in Vienna
Hundreds of people were on hand for the festivities that included a silent auction and a banquet.
The "A list" of University officials came up from Huntington for the evening or the affair.
Including Marshall University president Stephen Kopp, and Athletic Director Mike Hamerick
But the big draw of the evening was former Thundering Herd quarterback Chad Pennington.. .
Chad met with Marshall fans and signed autographs for well over an hour.
Chad also renewed his friendship with fellow Marshall grad Joe Roedersheimer, who.was honored for all that he's done for Thundering Herd Athletic scholarship fund over the years.
Joe is just one example of why the Parkersburg area is so important to Marshall University
