David Wingfield and Deborah Wilson in the SAU Honors Office
Congratulations to David Wingfield for being named a finalist in the first annual NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence.
Here is the citation that accompanied his nomination:
David Wingfield, Southern Arkansas University – Finalist
“The SAU Honors College was founded in 2003 and David Wingfield has been its administrative assistant since the beginning. He has seen the Honors College grow from a small handful of students to a cohort that now exceeds six percent of our overall student body. David eased my transition as the second director by gentle suggestion and totally competent administration. It would be difficult to run the Honors College without him and impossible to replace him. Students call him "Dr. David" and he is always quick to respond to their requests and problems. He especially has a soft spot in his heart for international students whether they are in honors or not. On his own time, he has driven them to the airport, opened his home to them, and learned and prepared some of their own cuisine. We are only a two-person shop but he carries well more than his share. He is more than my right-hand man, he is the soul of our program.” –Edward Kardas, Southern Arkansas University
