Nominations from Drake faculty and staff are being accepted from the University community for the Oreon E. Scott Award. Oreon E. Scott was a former Drake governing board member who turned his success as a St. Louis real estate businessman into a lifetime of philanthropy for the Disciples of Christ Church, which founded Drake in 1881. Given annually since 1949, the Oreon E. Scott Award recipient is considered to be the outstanding senior student at Drake. The Oreon E. Scott Award winner will represent the graduating class and speak at commencement in May.
The student's scholarship, leadership, service and involvement during their time at Drake will be the criteria used by the selection committee.
