The 2013 Image Awards Will Recognize the Contributions of University Leaders

Image AwardsStudents, faculty, staff and organizations will be honored for their dedication to Ferris State University during the 2013 Image Awards on Saturday, Feb. 9 in Williams Auditorium.

The Black Leaders Aspiring for Critical Knowledge registered student organization hosts the annual event to honor outstanding leaders for their hard work on campus.

“This is a great event for students to attend, because not only does it honor campus leaders and their achievements on campus, but all nominations and voting are done by students,” said Lonie Donald II, president of B.L.A.C.K. “Unlike other award ceremonies, the campus can come to see if the person they voted for actually won.”

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for the free, formal event, which begins at 7 p.m.

Among the awards to be presented are the Jessie Owens award, which acknowledges an outstanding student-athlete, and the Malcolm X award, given to a leader on campus. In addition to the award presentations, entertainment will include poetry, dancers and music.

To complement the 2013 theme of “The Revolution,” which honors its Ferris roots, B.L.A.C.K members will use crimson and gold decorations, and incorporate Ferris’ core values of collaboration, diversity, ethical community, excellence, learning and opportunity into the awards show, Donald said.
