On Feb. 15, Dr. Betty L. Siegel was honored as the inaugural recipient of the Emily B. Grigsby Award “For a Lifetime of Inspiration and Achievement” in Atlanta.

In December, Dr. Siegel was recognized by the American Clergy Leadership Conference with the True Family Values Award for her “exemplary standard of living for the sake of others” and for inspiring others. The awards ceremony was held in Chicago at their national conference. Dr. Siegel continues her academic activities with recent publications, and in April she travels to South Africa to present a paper at the 14th International Winelands Conference held in Stellenbosch: Innovation for the Urban Age. Her paper deals with the role of the university in addressing the increasing complex problems attending rapid urbanization.

Dr. Siegel was president of Kennesaw State University for 25 years, and at her retirement in 2006, was the longest serving woman president of a public university or college in the country.
