HUNTINGTON, Ind.— The Huntington University Peer Award recipients for May are Dr. Michael Rowley, associate professor of communication, and Andy Vaught, admissions counselor.

The Peer Award, which began in 2003, promotes acknowledgment and recognition of the outstanding efforts of Huntington University faculty and staff members. Award winners are chosen and recognized each month by fellow peers.

Rowley was recognized by Steve Alexander, HU maintenance technician, for his moving message during chapel.

“Thank you, Mike, for your inspirational message on the Holy Spirit in chapel. It was a good reminder not to ignore those inklings we get as Christians, but to act upon them,” Alexander said. “Also I want to thank Mike for his giving attitude. Mike runs Mike’s tree service and one day he asked me if I would like some fire-wood. He said I could use his trailer and cart to haul the wood to my house. The wood was already cut up and ready to go. This was a great gift and shows the heart of Mike Rowley.”

Vaught was recognized by Chad Ralston, HU electrician, for his great attitude in the workplace.

“Andy is a nice guy with a great attitude. He always seems happy to be at work, which is a good personality to have especially for his job,” Ralston said.
