Athletics Special Service Award
The Selection Committee of the Bulldog Athletic Hall of Fame has chosen emeritus faculty member Joan Nelson as the second recipient of the Bulldog Athletics Special Service Award.
Nelson, who taught health and physical education at Ferris from 1962 until her retirement in 1990, is an avid supporter of Bulldog women's athletics. She is a member of the University's Founder's Club and Ferris Emeriti Association.
The Michigan State University alumna has been a champion for women's athletics at Ferris since the program began in the early 1970s and is a contributor of both moral and financial support. Nelson resides in Charlevoix during the summer months.
