April 22 2011 by Mars Hill College

    Marc Mullinax, professor of religion and philosophy, and senior student Kristina Rathburn of Burnsville have received the 2011 G. MacLeod Bryan Caring Awards at Mars Hill College (MHC).

    The Bryan Caring Award was one of several awards for service presented at the Mars Hill College Community Service Convocation, April 12. The Caring Award recognizes members of the college community who make significant contributions to a better community and a better world. It recognizes recipients who have made a positive impact on the community, whose involvement in the community is ongoing, whose action in the community is directed at serious social challenges and who works to connect the campus and wider community.

    The award was named in honor of G. McLeod (“Mac”) Bryan, a member of the MHC class of ’39, and a professor at Wake Forest University, who not only worked tirelessly for the cause of peace and justice, but influenced countless others to join the cause. This is the first year that award was presented since his death in September 2010.

    Rathburn has been active in planning, promoting and participating in many service activities and events on campus. Notably, she was a lead planner for the 2010 and 2011 “Hunger Weeks” at MHC, which raised awareness of food insecurity.

    Mullinax is a 1977 graduate of Mars Hill who went on to earn degrees at the University of Tennessee, Southeastern Seminary and Union Seminary in New York. He has taught religion and philosophy at Mars Hill for more than 10 years.
