The FRA Hall of Excellence Award
The FRA Hall of Excellence recognizes distinguished alumni and former faculty.
Our 2018 Hall of Excellence inductees were Mark Campbell '89, who was recognized as our distinguished alumni, and Jerry Williams, who was named distinguished former faculty.
Mark, who is the women's head basketball coach at Union University, recently won his 600th game, the fastest to do so in NCAA history.
Jerry was part of the FRA community for 32 years, serving as a teacher, coach, and mentor to countless alumni.
We celebrated the inductees at the Hall of Excellence Luncheon as part of Alumni Weekend.
