Mr. Timothy Leonard and Ms. Nicole Tashner
Dr. Oliver S. Ikenberry served as President of Shepherd College for 21 years, from 1947-1968. These were years of expansion for all of American higher education and important formative years for Shepherd College as well. The institution grew in academic stature and breadth of program offerings. It expanded substantially in enrollment and in acreage that provides the spacious campus Shepherd enjoys today. President and Mrs. Ikenberry were actively engaged with students, faculty, staff, and alumni and intimately involved with the community of Shepherdstown. Ikenberry Hall was named in honor of President Ikenberry’s service to Shepherd. This award is designated for one male and one female student for “exemplary human service to Shepherd University as evidenced by campus leadership, community service, and overall achievement.”
