President Carlberg Receives High School Alumni Award

On Friday, May 22, 2009, R. Judson Carlberg received the Alumni of the Year Award—from his high school! The B.M.C. Durfee High School Alumni Association in Fall River, Massachusetts, honored R. Judson Carlberg as one of only two distinguished alumni. President Carlberg, a 1958 alumnus (yup, that’s him in his senior yearbook), was awarded the honor at Nagle Auditorium on the Durfee campus last Friday.

Dr. Carlberg is the seventh president of Gordon, and also serves on a variety of boards, one of which is another of his alma maters, Denver Seminary, where he received his M.A., and M.Div. in 1965. Currently he is the only college president from a Christian college to be elected to the Board of Directors for the National Council for Higher Education Accreditation, which is based in Washington, D.C. It seems the Durfee high school grad is still a successful man on campus, and still loves basketball, orchestra and bands!
