BGSU hires director for ice arena
Jeff Crawford, a former bank executive and longtime youth hockey supporter, has been named the new director of the BGSU Ice Arena.
Dr. Ed Whipple, vice president for student affairs, said Crawford’s business experience and knowledge of the community made him ideal for the job.
Crawford, formerly a manager at Fifth Third Bank, played hockey for Bowling Green High School, coached youth hockey, served as an officer of the community’s youth hockey league and is an off-ice official for the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. He also worked at the Ice Arena for four years while a student at BGSU.
“The arena still has a lot of potential, and I’m committed to helping it grow,” Crawford said.
Before joining Fifth Third, Crawford worked in the insurance industry and was a vice president with Mid Am Bank. He holds a bachelor’s degree from BGSU.
BGSU Mortar Board chapter receives national awards
The Fayetta Paulsen Chapter of Mortar Board at BGSU was among the chapters honored for their excellence last month at the honor society’s national conference in Chicago.
The BGSU group was one of just 32 to win the Golden Torch Award, presented to chapters that are “superb, timely and go above and beyond the minimum standards throughout the academic year,” according to Mortar Board, which recognizes college seniors for achievement in scholarship, leadership and service.
The 35-member BGSU chapter was also among 28 to receive a Project Excellence Award, granted to chapters with notable projects in the areas of scholarship, leadership, fundraising, service, a national “Reading Is Leading” literacy initiative, alumni involvement or Mortar Board Week. The chapter was recognized for its project, “The Living Book,” which was a live presentation of the book “Hello, Freddie Falcon!”
Accepting the awards was BGSU chapter President Brittany Fiffick, a Spanish and political science major from Hinckley.
Chartered in 1969, the BGSU Mortar Board chapter was named in honor of Fayetta Paulsen, a longtime administrator in the University’s Office of Residence Life, in 1989.
