Tenth Annual Clayton Family Circle of Honor Induction Dinner

The 2019 Clayton Family Circle of Honor Induction Dinner will bring together more than 600 leaders in the Indianapolis and surrounding area, Marian University alumni and students, new friends, and long-time supporters of Marian University.

Join us in celebration of honorees Allison Melangton and Tim McGinley and in memory of Joe Clayton.

All proceeds support scholarships, development and maintenance of facilities, or designated area.

The Clayton Family Circle of Honor

The Clayton Family Circle of Honor was created in part to honor, but also to inspire. Joseph Clayton and his wife, Janet, agreed to lend their names to these awards because they believe in the character-building qualities associated with athletics in a university community. At Marian University, the faith tradition and values are activated in many ways, including athletics. On the fields and courts of competition, student-athletes learn respect, fair play, and teamwork. These values carry over into all areas of their lives: personal relationships, careers, parenthood, and community service.

In Memory of Joseph P. Clayton (1949-2018)

joseph claytonJoe Clayton passed away on November 3, 2018, following a brief illness. Joe will be inducted into the Clayton Family Circle of Honor and a special video tribute to his contribution to Marian University athletics will be part of the event program on April 9, 2019.
