The President's Post
    At the recent Clarksville-Johnson County Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner, the University of the Ozarks received a marvelous honor. Ozarks was named the “Corporate Business of the Year” for 2001. Lately, as a campus, we have been recognized in a variety of ways, but I am most proud of this one. The award was the result of a team effort by all of us. Our status in the community – as an educational leader and a model of service to others – is important to me, and I appreciate that you have made the same commitment. Each of us, as an employee or a student, is an ambassador for this campus in everything we do. We are Ozarks. I appreciate your realization of that significant responsibility.
   At the Chamber Awards Dinner Julia Frost, Director of the Learning Center, received the “Educator of the Year” award. That is a well-deserved honor for Julia, the Learning Center, and Ozarks. Please extend your congratulations to Julia for this achievement.
   Ozarks was recognized in a third manner as well. Roy and Nancy Johnson and the late Dr. Alvin Broyles were named as recipients of the “Community Pride” awards. Roy Johnson is on the Board of Trustees and recently served as chair of the Board. He and Nancy are generous supporters of Ozarks and are responsible for the beautiful entryway to the campus on College Avenue. Dr. Broyles was an alumnus of Ozarks and a former lifetime Board of Trustee member. The Smith-Broyles Science Center is named in honor of him, and several campus beautification projects are a result of his bequeathal.
   All of us should be proud to be members of the Ozarks’ community. And Ozarks is privileged to be an integral part of Clarksville and Johnson County.

Dr. Rick Niece
