Ping Award to undergraduate students with outstanding leadership and contributions to community service on their campus and within their community.  Candidates showing evidence of exemplary community service are nominated by the president of his or her college or university.  The Ping award recognizes student efforts, from individual commitment to service and community, to the ability to create an organization and to involve others.  The OCC is especially interested in efforts that have connected service with academic study or designed programs with long-term community support.A $500 legacy grant funded by Fifth Third Bank and State Farm Insurance, was presented to Watson by OCC Senior Program Director Jen Gilbride-Brown at the Senior Recognition and Honors Convocation held recently at the College.

Sylvester (Sy) Green ’64, retired national chairman/consultant of Green Rolle Consulting, LLC, was presented with the honorary degree of doctor of humane letters at the 162nd Commencement ceremonies at Mount Union College on Sunday, May 11. “Your strong leadership ability and keen business sense have served you well,” said Dr. Richard F. Giese upon conferring the doctor of humane letters degree. “You stand here as one to be emulated by those graduating seniors who await their diplomas.  You are a living example of the words in the College’s mission statement that we prepare our students for meaningful work, fulfilling lives and responsible citizenship.”“A respected business person, an exemplary role model and a dedicated leader, Mr. Green represents the best of what a Mount Union College education offers,” said Dr. Michael Myler upon, professor of economics, accounting and business administration and chair of the Department of economics, accounting and business administration upon presenting the degree.A native of Sandusky, Ohio, Green was attracted to Mount Union College by its track program; but, by graduation day in 1964, he had excelled not only on the track but in leadership positions as well.  While at Mount, he was a member of the Student Senate, Blue Key Honorary, a recipient of the Citizenship Award and a founding member and chair of the Men’s Judicial Council.“That leadership that he demonstrated in college carried over into his professional career at Chubb Insurance,” said Myler. “Within the Chubb Insurance family, he served as the mentor to younger managers, getting them to understand themselves while helping them see the big picture.  “His mantra for those younger managers was ‘raise the bar.’”His rise through the ranks at Chubb was exemplary.  In 1974, after ten years with the company, Green became one of Chubb’s youngest branch managers when he opened and managed a new office in Westchester County, New York.  Eight years later, he returned to New York City to manage the downtown office, which has been the company’s flagship for three decades.  He went on to become the catalyst for the company’s ongoing total quality management program.Green has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Mount Union Alumni Service Award, the M-Club Award of Excellence, the Frank C. Carr Community Service Award, and the Westchester Urban League Community Service Award.
