In recognition of their support of the Weisbecker Scholarship Fund and remaining as season ticket holders for 20-plus years, Darrell ’64 and Karen Kehl of Hudson were named the recipients of the 2014 Joseph F. Warner Golden Redbird Award.

It is the highest honor bestowed to a donor, recognizing not only financial support but exemplary service and leadership to the Athletics program.

The Kehls have significantly supported several projects within the ISU Athletics Department, including the Redbird Arena Completion Project, the men’s basketball and volleyball locker room renovations, as well as the Hancock Stadium renovation.

Their name adorns Associate Head Men’s Basketball Coach Dana Ford’s office, while the volleyball locker room is named after their daughter, Jami (Kehl) Head ’97. In addition, the family supports the men’s basketball team annually.
