cardwell_john_award(Bluefield)—Bluefield State College administrator John Cardwell received the "Anderson-Milam Award" at the West Virginia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers' (WVACRAO) annual conference in Morgantown.

The Anderson-Milam award recognizes the distinguished service rendered by an individual who has made significant contributions to WVACRAO. The award was created to commemorate the services of Douglas Anderson, former Registrar at West Virginia State College, and Otis Milam, former Registrar at Fairmont State.

Cardwell, BSC's Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, has been an active WVACRAO member for more than 20 years and has served the state organization in a variety of capacities, including president and special projects chair. He has also served on several national committees within AACRAO and currently represents the state of West Virginia as its ACT representative to the national Board of Directors of that organization.

Cardwell was also selected, in 1994, as WVACRAO's "Rick Snow Award" recipient. The Rick Snow award was established to honor distinguished young professionals in Admissions, Records, or Enrollment Management who have made significant contributions to WVACRAO. The award was established in honor of the late Rick Snow, the former Registrar/Director of Admissions at Bluefield State College who befriended and mentored many new admissions and records professionals through the years.

"This is a great honor;" Cardwell said. "I am humbled to be chosen for this prestigious award. " He continued "I enjoy what I do and this association has provided so much to its members to help us grow professionally. This is truly a capstone to my career in West Virginia higher education."
