Businesses and individuals alike were honored at the Downtown Beloit Association’s annual awards ceremony last week. Among the honorees were several people with ties to the college: John Nicholas and Becky Moffett’85.
Moffett is the office coordinator for the Wright Museum of Art and Logan Museum of Anthropology; she and her late husband Kevin Minter received the DBA’s Volunteer of the Year award, which Moffett accepted.
The DBA awarded the college’s Vice President for Administration and Treasurer John Nicholas with the first-ever legacy award. In accepting the award, Nicholas said: “When I first came to Beloit it was down on its luck, but now it’s the envy of others…what Beloit has accomplished is amazing and it’s successful because of everyone who believes that Beloit is worth fighting for.”
Other Beloiters in attendance included Turtle Creek Bookstore Manager Peter Fronk, the new chairperson of the DBA board, and the college’s representative at the event, Director of Special Events Tiffany Warren.
