Distinguished awards to be presented

Ada — The recipients of East Central University’s Distinguished Awards for 2013 will be honored on Friday, May 10, during the ECU Foundation’s Honors and Recognition Banquet at 6:30 p.m.

Recipients are R. Alan Marcum, Distinguished Alumnus; Joe Steven Stokes, Distinguished Alumnus (posthumous award); The Ramadan Family, Distinguished Family; Dr. Elizabeth C. Schmelling, Distinguished Former Faculty (posthumous award); Margaret ‘Peggy’ Nims, Distinguished Former Faculty; Monica L. Neal, Distinguished Service; and the Chickasaw Nation, Distinguished Philanthropist.

Distinguished Alumnus R. Alan Marcum has served as executive vice president of administration at Devon Energy since 2008. He is responsible for office administration, information technology, project management and records management.

Marcum is one of eight members of the company’s executive committee and has been involved in Devon Energy’s massive growth from a $200 million company in 1995 to the largest company in the state of Oklahoma with an enterprise value of $28 billion.

Devon, located in Oklahoma City, currently employs more than 5,000 employees located across North America. Marcum was also a part of the team that oversaw construction of the Devon Energy Tower, the company’s new headquarters. He helped ensure that the project was completed on time, within budget and that the facility included appropriate amenities to improve the company’s efficiency.

A 1990 graduate of ECU with concentrations in accounting and finance, Marcum was a four-year starter on the Tiger football team and received all-conference honors his junior and senior seasons, as well as an honorable mention All-American award as a senior. He also competed on ECU’s track team.

In 2009, Marcum received the Joe Milam Award, named in honor of the former football coach and educator in Oklahoma. The award is given annually at ECU to a former football player who not only excelled on the gridiron but in his chosen profession or career.
