2012 HHS Award Recipients


Distinguished Alumni Award

Marc E. Fey - Some students don't see themselves as leaders but they earn those positions by taking part, becoming engaged in activities, speaking out; in general, participating at a high level and demonstrating their capabilities and leadership potential as a result. The main message to students? Be a good student in the classroom but don't allow the classroom or campus to form the boundaries of your education. Marc E. Fey, PH.D.
