The Meritorious Service Alumnus Award honors alumni who have made significant, sustained contributions of time, energy, and creativity toward the advancement of the University. This year’s recipient is Mark Ammerman ’82, who has faithfully supported HBU and the Alumni Association since he graduated. Mark previously served on the Dean’s Development Council for the Archie W. Dunham College of Business, the Center for Christianity in Business Advisory Board, and is a current member on Houston Baptist University’s Board of Trustees. From his wise counsel on multiple projects to creating a scholarship in the school of Christianity, Mark is dedicated to helping grow and strengthen HBU. Mark recently retired as the Managing Director and Industry Head of Energy at Scotiabank Global Banking, and he never hesitates to come back to his alma mater to offer his expertise and advice as HBU continues to grow and expand to be a world-class university. His constant commitment to the growth of the University and the success of the Alumni Association make him a deserving recipient of this award.
