Chancellor earns Great American Hero Award

The Great Alabama Council of the Boy Scouts of America Youth Leadership Development Program recently presented its highest honor to Auburn University at Montgomery Chancellor Carl A. Stockton.

Stockton earned the Great American Hero Award, which highlights leaders who exemplify character, faith and patriotism. Previous recipients of the award include Congressional Medal of Honor winners Bennie Adkins, Melvin Morris and Leo Thorsness, NASA astronaut and former International Space Station Director Larry DeLucas, orthopedic surgeon James Andrews and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr.

The Youth Leadership Development Program (YLDP) offers a nine-month leadership development program for high school juniors and seniors from 20 counties in North and Central Alabama. AUM is among 20 college and university partners that collectively commit more than $2 million in scholarships to Youth Leadership Development Program students each year. Read more

His paper, “Un análisis filológico comparativo Griego-Siriaca de los fragmentos de Gressmann Bruchstücken XVI (V.37f.) y XVII (V.42) del Libro V de la Teofan ía de Eusebio de Cesárea,” offers a comparative philological analysis in Spanish of two Greek fragments from Book V of Eusebius of Caesarea’s “Theophany,” written in the 330s A.D., and the corresponding passages of the Syriac translation of the work, which was written in A.D. 411

Exercise the First Amendment in “I am a Journalist Writing Contest”

Enter the AUM Department of Communication and Theatre’s “I am a Journalist Writing Contest” to exercise your right to free speech. The competition is a great opportunity for students to learn and gain a deeper understanding of their rights under the First Amendment.

As part of the contest, students must submit a minimum 350-word personal essay on one of three topics: 1) Opinion or experience involving the First Amendment, 2) One positive change to AUM and why it was successful, or 3) One negative change to AUM and why it should be changed or removed. Submissions may include a maximum of two images. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 11, 2019. Three winning submissions will be published in AUM’s student newspaper AUMnibus and receive a gift card prize.

The “I am a Journalist Writing Content” is sponsored in cooperation with AUMnibus and students in Dr. Eunyoung Kim’s COMM 3800 Public Relations I course to promote the First Amendment. Students developed the contest from a class assignment about Middle Tennessee State University’s “1 for All” campaign, a “national nonpartisan and nonprofit educational effort to build understanding and respect for the five freedoms of the First Amendment.”

The Department of Communication and Theatre will host information sessions and promotional events for the writing competition Sept. 30 – Oct. 3 in the Quad. Please send your contest entries to Morgan Thayer at vthayer@aum.edu or Eunyoung Kim at ekim2@aum.edu

First, second and third place winners in the writing competition will be recognized at an award luncheon Oct. 30 in Taylor Center Room 222.
