And the 2019 SSU Distinguished Alumnus is …

Last month, Shawnee State University announced the 2019 Alumni Awards in a press release. The awards were presented at the annual President’s Gala in late April at SSU’s 2019 President’s Gala on April 27. The gala and dinner raised more than $40,000 for the SSU Development Foundation Grants Program.

I was honored to receive The Distinguished Alumnus Award for 2019. The award is presented to an alumnus who has demonstrated “distinguished professional achievement, personal qualities, and service to the university.”

The Distinguished Alumni Ambassador was Heather Cantrell, and the Medal of Merit went to Matthew Purcell. Awards were also presented for Alumni Community Service and Outstanding Recent Graduate. More details can be found at the SSU press release at the link below.

The press release makes mention of my forthcoming novel, Setting the Family Free.

“An author of four books, Goodman’s upcoming novel Setting the Family Free will be released in October 2019 and will feature scenes of his alma mater’s campus.”
