Alumnus makes $1 million donation to Mean Green Athletics

Kuehne Family $1 million donationAbove, Dusti, Trip and Will Kuehne, donor Ernest Kuehne and Athletic Director Rick Villarreal.

Ernest W. Kuehne, Dallas executive and attorney, and a former Mean Green athlete, donated $1 million to Athletics. The funds will support various sports and facilities, including the new football stadium scheduled to open in September.

The university and the Athletics department “gave a young man an opportunity to grow and create a path for his future,” Kuehne said. “The impact it had on my life and later successes is immeasurable and I am humbled and honored that I can give back to help others do the same. I challenge every alum and fan to step up and help move this university forward.“

Kuehne is a native of Mart who earned track scholarship in 1962, and completed a bachelor’s degree in 1966. He has been an executive in banking, oil, horse racing and breeding and law. His philanthropic efforts include the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital and Juvenile Diabetes Association.

Kuehne also is the patriarch of what has been called the country’s First Family of Golf. Kuehne’s children – Hank, Trip and Kelli – have enjoyed successful golf careers at the collegiate, amateur and professional level. He has been president of the American Junior Golf Association.

The donation was announced at halftime of the Jan. 22 UNT versus Arkansas State basketball game; the Mean Green won, 83-64.
