Congratulations to Rose Minton, recipient of the Dr. Douglas S. Franklin Student Leadership Award!

Dr. Douglas S. Franklin has exhibited passion and dedication to recreation and student development since 1994. With his leadership, challenge, and support, recreation at Ohio University united to become the Division of Campus Recreation in 1996: after a long history of existing as distinct programs and facilities. His tenacity challenges students as well as professional staff members to lead by example and do so with intention, compassion, and drive. Leadership, according to Dr. Franklin, has a reciprocal relationship with learning and such leadership practices continue to shape the way students engage in the campus community via Campus Recreation.
