Memphis Zoo CEO, Rhodes professor earn honors | People
Dr. Chuck Brady, president and chief executive officer of the Memphis Zoo, received Rhodes College's Distinguished Service Medal and David Jilg, associate professor of theatre and a 1979 Rhodes alumnus, was presented the 2011 Jameson M. Jones Award for Outstanding Faculty Service at the college's Opening Convocation August 19.
Rhodes and the Memphis Zoo have been neighbors for well over three-quarters of a century, and Dr. Brady has been there just over a quarter of a century.
For this dedication to excellence in education, Brady was presented the college's Distinguished Service Medal.
The Jameson M. Jones Award for Outstanding Faculty Service honors a current faculty member who has rendered exemplary service and provided leadership to the Rhodes community.
Professor David Jilg's distinguished record of service includes serving on several faculty committees and assisting with campus initiatives, regularly representing Rhodes at admissions events, devoting long hours to the college's many theatrical productions, and chairing two, academic departments.
