Hill receives Distinguished Services Award

Posted June 24, 2014

Dr. Dickie Hill, professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition, was awarded the “Distinguished Services Award” at the national conference for the “Christian Society for Kinesiology and Leisure Studies.”

CSKLS serves as a catalyst for individuals integrating the Christian faith into the disciplines of kinesiology and leisure studies.

The Glen Van Andel Distinguished Service Award honors a current member of CSKLS who has served both inside and outside of the organization. According to criteria for the award, the honoree serves as a spiritual leader, showing a Christ-like heart in both personal and professional actions.

“I nominated Dr. Hill because I believe he deserved recognition for his service to CSKLS as a frequent presenter, board member and president,” said Dr. Lorraine Wilson, assistant professor of kinesiology and nutrition. “CSKLS members think highly of Dr. Hill and appreciate his leadership and commitment to the integration of faith in our discipline.”

Members of CSKLS society are dedicated to integrating their faith with disciplines in research, publications, public presentations and professional interactions.

Hill has been a member of CSKLS for 12 years and during that time has served on several committees, its board, served as president and has presented numerous papers at CSKLS conferences.

“Being honored by this group means more to me than other honors I have received because it comes from Christian colleagues in my profession,” Hill said.
