Milligan seeks professional and student examples of servant leadership in the region

Leaders in Christian Service awards

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Sept. 26, 2018) — Each year, Milligan College recognizes Christian leaders in the Tri-Cities who integrate their faith with their profession. The college is currently accepting nominations for the 2019 “Leaders in Christian Service” program.

This year, Milligan has added a new category for nominations: current high school juniors.

Student nominees should reflect servant leadership in their schools or churches, demonstrate a commitment to long-term volunteer service, and be an advocate for improving society.

“Servant-leaders live out their faith beyond the walls of the church,” said Beth Anderson, director of Milligan’s Institute for Servant Leadership. “For the past several years, we have recognized regional professionals who exemplify servant-leadership. This year, we want to extend the recognition to student leaders who are making a positive impact in the community.”

In recent years, the college has recognized regional professionals from a variety of career fields. A complete list of past honorees can be found at

Recommendations for the “Leaders in Christian Service” program will be accepted until Friday, Nov. 2, 2018.

The 2019 “Leaders in Christian Service” ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 17, at 11 a.m. in Milligan’s Mary B. Martin Auditorium located in Seeger Memorial Chapel. The service is free and open to the public.

More information and nomination forms are available at or by calling 423-461-8316.
