@DoaneUniversity @DoaneAthletics February 18


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and  turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Doane University

Location: Crete, Nebraska

In my former life as coach and athletic director I met a lot of talented leaders. One of them is Jill McCartney who today serves as the Athletic Director at Doane University. I wrote about Jill in 2015 about her former life as a North Carolina Women’s Soccer player:

Doane is located in Crete, Nebraska. Crete is located southwest of Lincoln which is the home of the University of Nebraska. Doane University history dates to 1857, when the General Association of Congregational Churches, in its first annual meeting in Fremont, Nebraska, resolved to lay the foundations of a literary institution of a high order in the state.

Found a postcard online with different images from Doane.

The campus was built on land donated by the railroad. The first president of Doane University was David Brainerd Perry, who built the college from scratch. He came to Nebraska with deep New England roots. He worked tireless for 40-years at the college –serving  as professor, preacher and fundraiser on horseback.
