The Ada News

Dallas —  

Roberto Escamilla, Ada, Okla., was recently named one of two recipients of the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus Award by the Alumni/ae Council of Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University. The annual award recognizes Perkins graduates who have demonstrated effectiveness and integrity in service to the church, continuing support and involvement in the goals of Perkins School of Theology and SMU, distinguished service in the wider community, and exemplary character.

The Distinguished Alumnus Awards will be presented Monday, Feb. 4, at 6 p.m. during a banquet as part of Perkins School of Theology’s Ministers Week.

According to the Rev. Suzanne Reedstrom, lead associate minister at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church in Houston and chairperson of the Perkins Alumni/ae Council, it is customary to select only one recipient of the Distinguished Alumni/ae Award each year. “However,” Reedstrom explains, “after reviewing the outstanding nominations, it became clear that two exemplary alumni were deserving of this award for 2013.”
