Caleb Carr, recipient of Olivet's 2013 Servant Leadership Award

BOURBONNAIS, IL (04/25/2013)(readMedia)-- Olivet Nazarene University recently presented the 2013 Dr. Mark and Renita Williams Servant Leadership Award to junior students Karissa Cantrall and Caleb Carr, recognizing them for their outstanding Christian service. Each received a cash award and donated a portion of it to a charity.

Caleb Carr, a music and religious studies double major from Dakota, enjoys serving others and does so in a variety of ways. He is the equipment manager for Olivet's Orpheus Choir, drum instructor and volunteer for the Kankakee Salvation Army, a member of Olivet's Preaching Ambassador program, a drummer for student-led worship on campus. As a marathon runner, he often runs for charities, such as World Vision. After graduation, he plans to continue in ministry wherever God leads him.

Carr chose the Orangeville High School chapter of the Highland Community College Servant Leadership Program, Freeport, Ill., as the charity to receive his donation.

The Servant Leadership Award Program, established by the Barney II and Moore Foundations to develop servant leaders for the next generation, is a nationwide program. It recognizes those students who have already caught the vision of leading with a servant's heart while encouraging other students to think about how they might incorporate servant leadership into their own lives. This award honors college students who faithfully serve others, either on campus or in their communities, and act on behalf of "the least of these."

Olivet Nazarene University is an accredited Christian, liberal arts university offering more than 100 areas of undergraduate and graduate study, including the Doctor of Education in ethical leadership. Olivet has one main campus in Bourbonnais, Ill. - just 50 miles south of Chicago; three additional sites: Rolling Meadows and Oak Brook, Ill., and Hong Kong; and more than 100 School of Graduate and Continuing Studies learning locations throughout Chicagoland and the Midwest. From Oxford to Tokyo, hundreds of Olivet students also experience the global classroom each year, whether through study abroad opportunities or worldwide mission trips.
