Ryan Fisher has been named the 2019-20 Outstanding Senior in the Division of Health and Human Performance. The Division is part of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at OBU. Fisher was informed of his award by a surprise visit to his home by Dr. Chad Payn, assistant professor of sports and recreation.
Awards for outstanding seniors in all Colleges and Divisions are typically presented during a special awards chapel at the conclusion of the spring semester. With the awards chapel event not being held this year due to the University’s move to distance learning, these students are instead being recognized through an announcement via the University website and social media channels.
The awards for outstanding seniors in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences are selected based on scholarship, leadership, work ethic, campus involvement and community involvement.Fisher is graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in sports and recreation management. He was extremely active on campus and was selected as the best all-around male for the 2019 Harvest Court. He also served as an SGA officer, most recently as junior class vice president. He began studies this spring on a Master of Arts in Christian studies at OBU through dual enrollment as he completed his undergraduate degree.
