  • Chowan University President and First Lady honor Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Randy Harrell with the Spirit of Chowan Award at Wednesday night’s Midnight Madness in the Helms Center.
Randy's loyalty and support of the school and its students is without question, and his commitment is beyond the call of duty.

Chowan University’s Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Randy Harrell received the Spirit of Chowan Award on Wednesday night, November 5th, in front of a large and lively crowd gathered in the Helms Center for Midnight Madness. Randy Harrell has proudly served the students of Chowan with distinction and dedication since coming to Murfreesboro from California in August 2000.

“The Spirit of Chowan Award is one of the highest awards the university can give”, Chowan President Chris White remarked. “Randy's loyalty and support of the school and its students is without question, and his commitment is beyond the call of duty.”

Intended to honor extraordinary individuals who so embody the heart and soul of the university that they warrant recognition by the university community, Randy Harrell is only the eighth recipient of the Spirit of Chowan Award since its conception by a thoughtful board member in 2003.

The first Spirit of Chowan Award was presented to Genevieve Grier, a Chowan student, in 2003. Grier exhibited great courage, Christian faith, and a love for Chowan despite living with an illness that eventually took her life.
