Alumni to honor Newton
FOR MANY years Jim Newton has provided words of praise about the Ohio University Eastern Alumni Chapter's annual Austin Furbee Award recipient.This year, he can only offer words of humble appreciation.
In recognition of his outstanding service and contributions to OUE, the institution's alumni chapter has selected Dr. James Newton as the recipient of this year's award.A presentation will take place Wednesday evening at the Belmont Hills Country Club in St. Clairsville during the annual Austin C. Furbee Award Dinner.
Newton, OU's special assistant to the vice president of regional higher education, served as dean of OUE for 20 years before stepping down from the position last year.During his tenure as dean, Newton led the institution through two decades of tremendous growth both academically and through multimillion dollar additions of facilities as well.
The Austin C. Furbee Award is dedicated to the memory of one of the founding fathers of OUE.
According to Terry Lee, co-chairman of the OUE Alumni Chapter, Newton is undoubtedly the perfect candidate for this year's award.
"This year, there is no exception with Jim Newton.
During Newton's 20 years at OUE, the number of four-year baccalaureate degrees offered at the Eastern Campus grew from three to 11, and the full-time student enrollment doubled.
Newton led the campus through major developments in media-assisted courses that are providing greater access to degrees, and he also expanded OUE's cultural programming.
Since stepping down from the position of dean, Newton has remained active with many endeavors at OUE.Now serving as OU's special assistant to the vice president of regional higher education, Newton's primary focus over the past year has been finishing work with the university's Bicentennial Campaign, a major effort with goals of enhancing community relations and raising more than $200 million in private support for the university.
Each regional campus was given separate goals to meet.OUE's contribution goal for the campaign was set at $3.1 million.To date, more than $3.7 was raised by OUE's team, and the campaign will continue until June 30.
"Every penny we raise during this fund drive will be used for our local programs," Newton explained, adding that the money will help fund scholarships, endowments, professorships and some ventures such as renovations, improvements in technology and student services at the OUE campus.
When the fund-raising campaign comes to a close, Newton will continue work with OUE's goals of establishing a stewardship of donors to keep contributors involved in the university's programs and activities.He will also concentrate his efforts on the planned rehabilitation of old 1828 brick tavern house, which is situated on the campus property along National Road.
Newton has also gone back into the classroom, teaching geography.He plans to continue working as an instructor at OUE and in his capacity as OU's special assistant to the vice president of regional higher education until June 30, 2005.After that, he plans to officially retire.
After such a distinguished career, Newton indicated that being named the recipient of the 2004 Austin Furbee Award is the icing on the cake.
"I think it's a little bit of a crowning jewel," he said."People see we've done here during my tenure as dean, and that really means a great deal to me."
Newton described Austin Furbee as a community leader whose pioneering efforts helped make higher education available to generations local scholars.
