Helen C. Hanes Friend of Education Award
The Helen C. Hanes Friend of Education Award is awarded bi-annually to an individual who models ideals drawn from the Marion Creed, "To care for what is, rather than for what seems; to be loyal to what is best in the traditions of the past and yet open to the discoveries of the present and the hopes of the future; to find strength in constructive service." Mrs. Hanes, a graduate of Marion College, embraced these ideals throughout her lifetime.
