The establishment of an award to recognize supporters of education was announced Wednesday by the Montgomery Institute, in collaboration with MSU Meridian.
The Dr. Ned B. Lovell Mississippi Educational Policy Fellowship program leadership award was named in honor of retired professor and former head of the Department of Leadership at MSU.
"It's always flattering to receive recognition of any kind, but especially flattering when you're honored by your peers, by people who I respect and know, and are providing great leadership in this part of Mississippi," said Dr. Lovell.
The first annual award was presented to the Phil Hardin Foundation for its support to improve education throughout Mississippi.
