FOR RELEASE
2009-02-09
Huntington, Ind.—Recipients of the Huntington University Peer Award for the month of February are Amber Brown and Nathan Geer.

April Meyer, admissions counselor, passed the Peer Award to Amber Brown. Brown is director of urban scholarship and mentoring and has been with HU for one year. In recognizing Brown, Meyer wrote, “Since Amber arrived on campus she has continually impressed me with her passion, vision and commitment to diversity through the Horizon Leadership Program. Not only has she excelled at taking on the many challenges of building a new program, but she has impacted so many current students and others along the way. She has shown over and over that she is giving of herself – her time, her ideas, her heart, her story. I personally have learned much from Amber and am grateful for the opportunity to have worked closely with her this past year. She will be greatly missed as she begins a new phase of her life in California.”

In recognizing Geer, Raymond said, “From one of my first days on campus in June 2008, I was blessed and encouraged by Nathan’s love for HU’s purpose, mission, faculty, staff and students. Nathan’s way of life and personality are positive influences to all around as he strengthens our intellectual, interpersonal, academic, educational and certainly Christ-centered community. Nathan’s love for learning is contagious among colleagues, friends and students. Nathan brings a lot to our campus as a professional, friend, leader, servant, husband, father and ‘Frisbee Czar.’ Nathan, it is great to have you as part of our campus, and we are truly honored by your diligence and commitment!”
