Cheney Award Nominations Being Sought
The Cheney Award was established by an anonymous donor in 1966 in recognition of the contributions made to Springfield College by Dean R. William Cheney. Dean Cheney, a graduate of the Springfield College Class of 1933, served as Dean of Admissions and Dean of Students at Springfield College from 1946 to 1965. A College and community leader, he dedicated his life’s work to helping students establish themselves as leaders.
The Dean R. William Cheney plaque is to be awarded each year to that member of the Springfield College family who has worked unselfishly for the best interests of the College and the community. The Springfield College family may be considered to include anyone who wants to be a part of what Springfield College represents and is trying to do.
Nominations may be submitted by any member of the Springfield College community and should be received no later than Friday, April 18, 2014.
When submitting a name, it is important that you also state the reasons why you feel this candidate is deserving of the honor. The reasons may include evidence of service to the College community and commitment to the Humanics mission of educating students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others. If you have nominated someone in the past three years, their name will be considered.
A committee comprised of faculty and staff will review the nominations and make recommendations to the president.
Please submit all nominations to the Cheney Award Committee, Office of Human Resources.
