Millikin University - Decatur, IL
Loyalty Award 
 


Charles J. Yurieci ’68 of Bloomington, Ill., is the recipient of the 2013 Alumni Loyalty Award in recognition of his dedicated and faithful service to Millikin.

A devoted alumnus and former student-athlete, Yurieci is an avid MU football fan and attends many games. He also attends many other campus events, including Vespers and Kirkland performances.

Through more than 40 years of giving, Yurieci has provided generous support for Millikin through The Millikin Fund, the Big Blue Club and Friends of Kirkland. He supported the “New Horizons” capital campaign and contributed to the ADM-Scovill building project in the “Advancing the Vision” capital campaign. During the current capital campaign, “Transform MU,” he has contributed toward football field enhancements and equipment for the Exercise Science and Sport program.

A member of the U.S. Army Reserve from 1968-74, Yurieci also completed a master’s degree in business administration at Illinois State University in 1972.

After more than 33 years of service, Yurieci retired in 2002 as crops division operations manager for Growmark Inc., a North American cooperative serving farmers with agricultural supplies and grain marketing services.

As a Millikin student and accounting major, Yurieci was the recipient of several scholarships and awards, including the Mueller Co. Scholarship all four years; the Murphey, Jenne and Jones Accounting Excellence Award and the Steagall-Sarran Scholarship in 1967; and the Millikin National Bank Outstanding Business Student award in 1968. A four-year letterwinner in football and baseball, he also played junior-varsity basketball his freshman year.

Yurieci and his wife, Gwendolyn, are also members of Millikin’s Investors Society.
