Honoring Sam Houston’s Best

For the third consecutive year, the CHSS has honored its top alumni and faculty with a “Wall of Honor” Ceremony.  For 2013, the honorees were FBI Agent Roy Hazelwood; former Dean of CHSS Dick Cording; General Cecil Neely; and former Professor Mattie Bedford.  And for the third consecutive year, the Junior Fellows were privileged to assist the Dean’s Office at this event.

The event was planned by Dean John de Castro and his staff, as well as the CHSS Alumni Advisory Committee, Chaired by Paula Lenz.  The event drew some eighty people including President Gibson and former President Marks.

Following the main ceremony, the Dean’s Office provided snacks and refreshments, perfect for mingling and catching up.

A dinner for the family and other guests followed, and on a personal note, it was nice for the Junior Fellows to have a chance to learn from SHSU’s administrators, faculty, and alumni.
