CONWAY, Ark. (April
29, 2021) — Hendrix College students
received honors for outstanding academic achievement, citizenship, and service
today at the 2021 Honors Day Convocation. The ceremony was held in the Wellness
and Athletics Center with limited attendance and other COVID-19 health and
safety protocols. 

“This is a joyful day for the College, as we
recognize the accomplishments and contributions of so many members of our
community,” said Hendrix President Ellis Arnold. “The academic, co-curricular,
and extracurricular achievements recognized today grow from our historic
mission to develop the whole person and our reputation for excellence.”

Joe Coker, a
senior physics major from Conway, Arkansas, is the recipient of the 2021
President’s Medal, which is presented each
year to the graduating student who best exemplifies the highest ideals of the
College. Criteria include excellence in scholarship, outstanding citizenship,
and service to the community. Each year’s recipient of the President’s Medal is
named by the President of the College upon the recommendation of a nomination
group.

Prior to the departmental academic
awards, Hendrix Provost Dr. Terri Bonebright presented three awards to faculty
members.

Biology professor
Dr. Jennifer Dearolf received the
Carole Herrick Award for Excellence in Academic Advising, which recognizes
high-quality academic advising, including contributions in advising that help
students formulate and achieve their intellectual, career, and personal goals.

Anthropology
professor Dr. Anne Goldberg received the Dr. Dionne Bennett Jackson Prize for
Diversity and Inclusion, which recognizes and rewards one faculty or staff
member for their demonstrated contributions to cultivating and nurturing a
diverse, inclusive, and welcoming campus community.

English professor Dr. Toni Jaudon
received the 2020-2021 United Methodist Church Exemplary Teaching Award, which
recognizes a faculty member who demonstrates excellence in teaching; civility
and concern for students and colleagues; commitment to value-centered
education; and service to students, the institution, and community.
