ASU alumna receives special award

MONTGOMERY, AL - Alabama State University's president has honored a Perry County native and ASU alumna with a special award for her decades of outstanding service to the university in a ceremony held Wednesday on campus.

Rosie Tubbs Kynard, a resident of Marion, was presented with the Alabama State University Certificate of Appreciation from President William H.

Harris in the ASU Presidential Conference Room as university officials and media looked on.

Harris lauded the 1958 graduate of ASU for her unrelenting service and enthusiasm for the university.

"We present you with this award in recognition of your tireless and commendable efforts on behalf of Alabama State University and because of your work as a community organizer," Harris said as he presented Kynard with the framed certificate.

Kynard, a retired educator from the Perry County school system and Concordia College, said she was excited to be recognized by the university that means so much to her.

"If it were not for the great education and experiences I received as a student at ASU, I would not be in the position to be receiving this award today," Kynard said.

"Alabama State is a very special place to me because it's an institution that is concerned about its students' welfare, regardless of their background, social or economic status," Kynard said.
