Kussmaul Award Presentation and Monthly Member Meeting/Luncheon
Presenting the Kussmaul Award
Our April Membership Meeting and Luncheon features the annual Kussmaul Award Presentation recognizing the Denison student who best exemplifies friendly relations between Granville and the University. Professor and accomplished author, Margot Singer, will provide remarks around the importance of the arts to Denison and the local community.
Since 1947, the Louis Kussmaul Friendship Award —jointly presented by Denison University and the Granville Area Chamber of Commerce—has been given annually to the Denison University student (traditionally a senior) who has contributed the most to building friendly relations between Denison and the Granville community. The Award honors the memory of Louis Kussmaul, a Granville printer who worked for his brother William H. Kussmaul, publisher of the Granville Times from 1890 to 1899. This is a formal recognition of those who have given of themselves to the greater community during their Denison years. A $300 prize is awarded the winning nominee. Traditionally this honor and monetary award is presented to a deserving senior Denison student during the Chamber’s April Member Meeting.
We hope you will join us in this celebration at our next member meeting on April 21, 11:30am - 1:00pm.
