CONWAY, Ark. (May 12, 2022) – The Office of Residence
Life at Hendrix College has presented the 2021-22 Residence Hall Awards to students
whose actions have fostered the community spirit of various areas of on-campus
Amelia Lindsey ’25 is the recipient of The Darrell G.
Trotter Memorial Award, which is given to a resident of Couch Hall who has
exhibited enthusiastic leadership and mature citizenship.
Kimber Campbell ’25 received The Jessie Embry Award,
which is given to the Galloway woman who embodies best those qualities for
which Mrs. Embry is admired and respected - selfless pride in her work, deep
caring for others, devotion, and service beyond what is asked or required.
Tyson Montoyo ’25 is the recipient of The Hardin Hall
Outstanding Citizen Award which is presented to the resident of Hardin Hall
who, in the estimation of his peers, has done the most for his hall and fellow
residents and has best exemplified the standards and ideals of Hendrix College.
Owen Edgington ’25 is the recipient of The Miller
Creative Quad Outstanding Citizen Award, which is given to the Miller resident
who has demonstrated qualities of strong leadership, good character, and
concern for their fellow Miller residents.
Leigh Brown ’25 received The Raney Hall Award, which
is presented to the Raney woman who best exemplifies loyalty, enthusiasm, and
Lauren Berry ’22 is the recipient of The Violet Braly
Award, honored by her peers for her dedication, enthusiasm, and genuine
consideration for fellow Veasey Hall residents – which required extra effort
this year in particular, with Veasey Hall closed for renovation and its
residents maintaining the community spirit while living in other locations.
Nestor Ruiz ’22 received The Captain W.W. Martin
Award. This award is presented to the Martin Hall resident who has demonstrated
those qualities which Captain Martin’s life exemplified: strong leadership,
good character, and concern for others. Like Veasey Hall, Martin Hall is
currently closed for renovation, so this recognition for Ruiz comes in a challenging
year for preserving community.
Jakson Needham ’24 is the recipient of the Houses
Council Award. This award is presented to the outstanding resident who has been
devoted to building community and fostering friendship in the Houses.
Ty Forrest ’23 received the Apartment Council

year to fostering community on campus,” said Dean of Students Jim Wiltgen. “They
have earned this recognition from their fellow students, and the Residence Life
