Dr. Andrew Hugine, President of Alabama A&M, presented the award on behalf of the Board of Trustees of Alabama A&M University.




"I am grateful to the entire team of leaders we have at Oakwood University. Each of us are beneficiaries of the generosity and self-sacrifice of an often-unseen cadre of committed workers. I thank them for their service and receive this on their behalf," observed Dr. Pollard. "God gets the glory and all the honor."
