Old National Bank and the University of Evansville have enjoyed a long and successful relationship. The partnership reaches a new level with the formation of the Walter McCarty Leadership Academy powered by Old National Bank.

The academy is an initiative that will benefit the Evansville community in many ways. The primary goal of the academy is to develop leadership skills and provide growth opportunities through unique experiences for the participants and their families.

One of those experiences will be through the ONB Community Section. For each men’s and women’s basketball home game, 50 complimentary seats behind the visitor’s bench will be given out through the academy. It will provide those in attendance with the chance to enjoy the game from a premium section while also being able to share the experience with Purple Aces head coaches Walter McCarty and Matt Ruffing following each home game.

The continued partnership between Old National Bank and UE is not limited to just the academy. Beginning in 2018, for every 3-pointer made by the Aces men’s and women’s squads, Old National Bank will donate $3 to the academy. This venture will be called the “ONB Three”.
