Troy University Chancellor Jack Hawkins, Jr., has been honored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III with the Chief Executive Leadership Award.
Dr. Hawkins received the award at the District III annual meeting in New Orleans, held this year in conjunction with institutions in District IV. The award, established in 1999, recognizes the Chief Executive of a District III member institution for outstanding leadership and service in support of education. Dr. Hawkins is the first chancellor or president of an Alabama university to receive this award.
“One of my favorite four-letter words, after ‘TROY’ is ‘team’ and we are fortunate to have an outstanding advancement team at Troy University,” Dr. Hawkins said. “It is on their behalf that I accept this award.”
Dr. Hawkins accepted the award from Peter Rooney, Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations at Oglethorpe University and chair of the CASE District III Board of Directors. After the presentation, Chancellor Hawkins participated in a panel with chief executives from three other institutions discussing leadership in higher education.
CASE District III advances and supports educational and professional institutions in the southeastern United States by enhancing the effectiveness of the alumni relations, fund raising, communications, marketing and other advancement professionals who serve them.
