John W. Richmond, director of the Glenn Korff School of Music, is one of three Achievement Day honorees at his alma mater, William Jewell College.
“As you can imagine, I was surprised, humbled and truly honored to learn I was to be one of three 2015 Achievement Day honorees,” Richmond said. “The list of past honorees is really quite impressive. Jewell’s nickname is the ‘Campus of Achievement’ and their alumni magazine is called ‘Achieve.’ I simply don’t know of alumni recognition for a Jewell alumnus that could mean more to me than the William Jewell College Citation of Achievement.”
Richmond will accept the honor during their Celebration of Achievement March 4-6.
Richmond has been at UNL since 2003. He received his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude in music education from William Jewell College in 1977, in addition to a master’s degree from the Conservatory of Music at the University of Missouri at Kansas City and a Ph.D. degree from Northwestern University.
