Joplin, MO (SNS) – Nearly 40 Missouri Southern State University students were recognized for their leadership and service efforts on campus during the 25th annual Glenn Dolence Leadership-Service Award ceremony, held Thursday, April 14, in Billingsly Student Center’s Connor Ballroom.
The award recognizes senior students who have made a difference on campus departments or organizations, student employment, student services or athletics. Sponsored by the Student Affairs Office and Omicron Delta Kappa, it is named in honor of Dr. Glenn D. Dolence, retired vice president for student services.
“This event is the single campus event that recognizes students for their excellence in areas outside of the classroom,” said Darren Fullerton, vice president of student affairs and enrollment management. “These students are recognized because their influence, actions and achievements have made a significant impact on their fellow students, the university and the surrounding communities. Missouri Southern is extremely proud of these students, and we look forward to seeing their accomplishments after graduation.”
