Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) President B. James Dawson presented bachelor of arts in art degree recipient Christine Hickman, of Middlesboro, with the prestigious Mary Mildred Sullivan Award during spring commencement exercises in May.
LMU is one of approximately 60 colleges and universities in the United States to have the privilege of awarding the Algernon Sydney Sullivan and Mary Mildred Sullivan Awards. The awards are given to recognize individuals whose “nobility of character” and dedication to service sets them apart as examples for others.
During her time at LMU, Hickman served as a Lincoln Ambassador. She was also selected to be part of the university’s first circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, one of the most respected national leadership honor societies in the country, and serve as an officer in the LMU ODK chapter.
She will further her education at Middle Tennessee State University in the fall where she will enroll in the Professional School Counseling Program.
