John S. Belew Award - Outstanding Male in Community Service
The John S. Belew Award for Outstanding
Male Student in Community Service is given annually to a current Baylor male
student to provide special recognition for his individual contribution of time,
talent and effort in the Waco community.
The John S. Belew Award for Most
Outstanding Male Volunteer was initiated in 1988 in honor of its namesake. Dr. John S. Belew graduated with a Bachelor of
Science degree from Baylor in 1941. He returned to Baylor in 1956 as an
assistant professor of chemistry. Dr.
Belew held many positions at Baylor, including Dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Belew was active in many community
organizations including the Waco Heart Association, Waco Performing Arts
Company, Clean Community Systems and Midway Independent School District Board
of Trustees. For this reason and to
honor his legacy, The John S. Belew for Outstanding Male Student in Community
Service is awarded annually to an undergraduate male Baylor student who has exhibited
an exemplary dedication to community service.
- Nominee must have personally contributed much of his time, talent and effort toward serving others in the community.
- Nominee needs to have demonstrated commitment to serving others over the course of his college career, including but not limited to activities through Baylor student organizations or community agencies.
- Nominee does not need to have held a leadership position, as this prize is awarded primarily on the basis of service and is not intended to be a leadership award.
