BARTLESVILLE, OK – The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville will receive the Kirkpatrick Award for Academic Freedom.
The American Conservative Union and the Lynde and Harry Bradley foundations announced Friday, Dr. Everett Piper will be honored next month.
Piper’s blog last year “This is Not a Daycare. It’s a University“, gained national attention and the foundation says he is a college administrator who stands out for his adherence to the tradition of academic integrity and open inquiry.
The award, which carries a $10,000 stipend to the honoree, will be made at the 2016 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Ronald Reagan Banquet on Friday, March 4, 2016.Follow @FortySixNews
