Major League Soccer announced last Friday the finalist for the MLS WORKS Community MVP contest presented by Wells Fargo. Chip Huber (Dean of Spiritual Engagement at Cornerstone) has been selected to as finalist to represent the Chicago Fire for his dedication to the fight against Malaria. The Grand Prize winner, as voted by the fans, will be awarded a $10,000 donation for the charity of their choice and a trip to the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game in Portland.  

Fan voting is open now through July 25 on the MLS WORKS web site:www.MLSsoccer.com/CommunityMVP or by CLICKING HERE. Fans may also vote for Huber by tweeting: "I vote for the @MLSWORKS @WellsFargo @ChicagoFire #CommunityMVP" from 1 p.m. CT on July 24 through 11 p.m. CT on July 25. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on Friday, July 25 at 1 pm CT via twitter by @MLSWORKS. 

"MLS WORKS is committed to supporting the communities that support our clubs," said JoAnn Neale, MLS Chief Administrative Officer. "These nominees are using the world's game to make a difference on a local level and we are proud to share their inspiring stories as well as recognize their incredible accomplishments."

One of the world's most deadly diseases, Malaria kills more than 750,000 children under the age of five every year. In an effort to fight this disease, Huber initiated an event in 2009 with the Cornerstone University Men's Soccer team called "Night of Nets". The goal of the initial event was to raise awareness and funds for the purchase of malaria bed nets for communities in Sub-Saharan Africa.  In the last five years, Huber has continued to engage the men's soccer program at Cornerstone University with an annual fundraiser, which has since collected a total of $60,000 and 10,000 bed nets.  His efforts are not limited to Cornerstone, as he has successfully incorporated outreach initiatives with three additional college soccer programs, numerous high school soccer teams and a variety of other sporting teams and groups.

As his charity, Huber has selected World Vision, an organization dedicated to fight world hunger through donations that support World Vision's aid, child nutrition and agricultural solutions around the world."

Kevin T. Wickliffe, 41, passed away suddenly in Santa Clara, California on the morning of July 13, 2014. Kevin was born on January 31, 1973 at Providence Hospital in Southfield, Michigan to Betty Ann Wickliffe. Raised in both Royal Oak Township, and the city of Royal Oak, Michigan, he graduated from Kimball High School in 1991 and Cornerstone University in 1996. Kevin was in awe of his children. He delighted in their wit, humor, laughter, and hard work ethic. He was overcome with joy and pride at the recent graduation of Daryenne from Cal Poly University. He was equally proud of Jase's creativity and hard work in school and on the basketball court. He loved to watch Daryenne run track and Jase play basketball. Kevin was a lifelong learner and lover of words. Always reading, trying to improve, and looking for the perfect words to convey his humor, thoughts, and stories. Basketball was a passion that Kevin carried through his lifetime. Kevin scored 1,531 points during his basketball career at Cornerstone. He was the JV coach at Wilcox High School in Santa Clara for the past four years. He was proud of all his players, especially when they executed their "lemons" play. They won league last season. Kevin was constantly studying, teaching, and talking about the game. He was also an avid golfer. If you met Kevin, you remembered him. Outspoken and quick to joke, he had a booming and infectious laugh. Kevin is survived by his children, Daryenne Ann Elyzabeth and Jase Rand; his wife of many years, Sonya; Uncle Roy Wickliffe (Diane), his beloved Aunt Ossie Dixon (Jollie), Uncle Lamont Wickliffe (Diedre); cousins: Roy, Regina, Steven; his in-laws Larry and Esther LeFebre, and a host of cousins and relatives. Kevin was preceded in death by his mother, Betty Ann and his beloved grandmother, Ernestine Wickliffe. For those who knew and loved Kevin, the best way to honor his memory is to never stop seeking, learning, and improving. A memorial service will be held on Friday, July 18, 2014 from 5-9 p.m. at Bowers Park Building, 2585 Cabrillo Avenue, Santa Clara, CA 95051. Please come to the memorial service and share your memories. The family requests that in lieu of flowers; send donations to the Boys and Girls Club of Silicon Valley.

Cornerstone University and head baseball coach David Mitroff are pleased to announce the signing of Seth Ritsema, a middle infielder, from Calvin Christian High School in Grandville, Mich. Seth hit .382 with an on-base-percentage of .520 and scored 31 runs this year. He was named 2nd Team All-State for his performance this season.

When asked about choosing Cornerstone University Seth said, "I chose to attend Cornerstone because I had an awesome opportunity to play college baseball, and also stay close to home. Another reason I chose the University is because it allows me to excel in the business field while being surrounded by other Christian believers."

Coach David Mitroff said, "We are excited to add Seth Ritsema to our program. We believe he can make an impact early on in his time here with his defense and his ability to handle the bat. Seth comes from a great program and his leadership ability will be an asset on campus."
