WILEY COLLEGE TO HONOR TALLADEGA COLLEGE PRESIDENT HAWKINS


Talladega, Alabama—Wiley College, the home of the Great Debaters, will bestow an honor on Talladega College President, Dr. Billy C. Hawkins this month. Dr. Hawkins has been selected as an honoree for the 2012 Men of Strength Program at Wiley College in Marshall, Texas.

The selection committee is honoring Dr. Hawkins as a “model of courage and inspiration for men in general and for men who desire careers in education.” Dr. Hawkins’ award will be presented at the Men of Strength Luncheon on Tuesday, February 21, at Wiley College.

The Men of Strength Program was founded to include an emphasis on the retention of male college students, foster spiritual growth, develop their leadership skills and ignite academic achievement. Since 2001, the program has been reaching young scholars at Wiley. In 2006, the program began recognizing leaders and influential front-runners who have impacted their communities and reflect strength and honor.

Attending the program this year will be participants from Wiley College, citizens of Marshall, Texas and surrounding cities, including Nacogdoches and Dallas, Texas and Shreveport, Louisiana. The event will be another opportunity for the “Alpha Lyrae Vega” to extend our reach and help our world-wide community.
