A number of recipients received annual awards at the end of the 2019-20 academic year at Missouri Valley College.

As MVC conferred 160 degrees for the graduating class of 2020, Kayleigh Barnes and Jan Jedlicka received the Charles L. Bacon Distinguished Service Award. This award is given annually during commencement to a senior man and woman, which are voted on by the senior class. MVC has rescheduled the May 2020 graduation for October 10, 2020 at Gregg-Mitchell Field.

The Ed Leslie Lamp of Knowledge winner for 2020 was Amber Austin (Middle School – Agriculture Education major). All MVC Scholar students are invited to submit an essay with the title:  “What Missouri Valley College Means to Me.”  Two MVC English professors read each essay and select a winner.

Each year, one MVC faculty member and one staff member each receive a peer voted award acknowledging their hard work and dedication to Missouri Valley College. This year, the recipient of the John McCallum Excellence in Teaching Award was Dr. Andrew Linsenbardt, associate professor of biology. The recipient of the President’s Staff Excellence Award was Colin Smith, associate athletic director and director of game day operations.
