The Alumni Association recently awarded Hannah Goudy with the H.L. Nowell Student Alumni Association Service Award at the annual 2017 Student Hall of Fame Banquet.
The award is named for Henry Lee “H.L.” Nowell Jr., who worked at Delta State from 1948-1987. During his 40-year tenure, Nowell served in numerous capacities including dean of men, dean of students, director of student activities, director of public relations, Delta State’s first director of the Student Union, and he was the first paid alumni secretary.
The award is given each year to the Student Alumni Association member that has given tireless effort and generosity throughout the academic school year. Goudy will graduate in December with her nursing degree and has been a Student Alumni Association member since her freshmen year.
