Alumni receive service citations

August 12, 2005


The KU Alumni Association honored three alumni and a former chancellor with Distinguished Service Citations during commencement weekend.

Among the honorees were Paul Adam Jr., chairman emeritus of Black & Veatch, who graduated from KU with an engineering degree in 1956.

"Maybe the thing that keeps KU alumni so closely tied to KU is not so much the institution itself, but the KU people," he said.

Also honored were Forrest Hoglund, chairman of Arctic Resources Co. Ltd. and a 1956 KU graduate; Delbert Shankel, KU professor and chancellor emeritus; and American Humanics president Kala Mays Stroup, who graduated from KU with a bachelor's in 1959, a master's in 1964 and a doctorate in 1974.
