Alice Lloyd College announced the winners of the Ella M. Geddes Servant Leadership Award during the 2011 Honors Day Awards Ceremony. This award was established to honor junior students for their contribution of service and leadership to Alice Lloyd College and the local community. The recipients were chosen by their peers and faculty as servant leaders in the areas of ministry and community service. The program serves as an effective instrument to the entire educational community by promoting the ideals of service that substantially benefit others.
The presidents of The Barney II Foundation and The Moore Foundation are collaborating to provide funding for the program. The foundations hold Christian core values as important elements of their funding philosophy. Two $1,000 awards were granted this year. Each recipient received $500 to be applied toward the cost of tuition, $250 for their personal use, and $250 to be donated to a charity of their choice. In addition, the recipients received a bronze sculpture of a “divine servant” and were honored at the annual ALC Board of Trustees meeting on April 29, 2011.
The 2010-11 recipients of the Ella M. Geddes Servant Leadership Awards are Kestin Howard, son of Jerome and Reta Howard, of Mousie, Kentucky, and Ruby Pearl Maggard, daughter of Oliver Maggard, of Hazard, Kentucky.
