Four Individuals Honored by Belmont College

Belmont College Holds Heritage Tree and Emeritus Ceremony

St. Clairsville, OH (Oct 30, 2012) – In recognition of their dedication and commitment to the College, four individuals were awarded high honors at the October 25 Heritage Tree and Emeritus Ceremony held at Belmont College.

“Our honorees were chosen in acknowledgement of their unique contributions and long history with Belmont College,” said Mrs. Elizabeth Gates, Board of Trustees Chairperson. “They have all served in different capacities by devoting their time and excellent work to the College and our students.”

The Heritage Tree Award is presented to individuals who have helped to shape the College through their leadership efforts and steadfast dedication. Receiving this distinguished award for her extraordinary devotion to the College was Ms. Marilyn Wildman. We offer her our sincerest congratulations!

Ms. Wildman, Professor Emeritus, retired from her position as Director of Information Systems in June of 2010. She began her employment with the College in September of 1975 as an adjunct instructor in computer programming and was hired to teach full-time in September 1982. Ms. Wildman continued teaching until July of 2007 when she accepted the appointment as Director of Information Services.

A symbolic tree with gold leaves adorns a prominent spot in the College to showcase the names of the current honorees and those who previously received the distinction. Inductee’s names are etched on the tree as a permanent reminder of their individual commitment to the creation, growth and development of Belmont College’s heritage.

Additionally, the notable designation of Emeritus was bestowed upon the following individuals: Ms. Bonita Fador, retired Professor of Nursing; Ms. Anna Marie Kubovich, retired Professor of Accounting; and Mr. Terry Loy, retired Director of Facilities. The Emeritus designation is an honorary title given to retired faculty and staff in recognition of admirable service to the college and its students.

“The Heritage Tree and Emeritus honorees deserve high recognition for their devotion to our institution and our students,” said President Dr. Joseph E. Bukowski. “They are a representation of the dedication that they have given to their students over the years. It is an honor to have had these individuals as an integral part of Belmont College, and recognize them for the effect they have had on past generations of our students.”

A reception was held in the Horizon Hall lounge area to celebrate the inductees.
