Kudos to OWU Chaplain Jon Powers, who was honored for his outstanding contributions to OWU on his 20th anniversary at the University. He and his wife Susan Speer Powers, attended the recent student-trustee dinner sponsored annually by the Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs. Highlighted this year were the many contributions of OWU’s mission teams over the years. As senior Rory McHale, outgoing WCSA president explains, “We chose to put forth a resolution honoring Chaplain Powers, which the Board of Trustees passed at their meeting the following day.” Congratulations, Chaplain Powers!
