Adam chievement ard "I felt very grateful to Dr. Tommy Mc- Cord that he would nominate me for the award, and I was grateful to the committee that they would give me the award even though I was older and not the 'regular college student'," Mary Wynn, recipient of the Adams Achievement Award said. "It made me realize that the award was based on how you had to struggle and work for an education, and not on on-campus social involvement." Mary, an oral communication major from Cleburne, was a court reporter for two years and a legal secretary for eight years before coming to ACU to begin her education in June of 1979. Since that time she was not only a full-time student but also the secretary for the chemistry department. She was a volunteer for the Abilene Rape Crisis Center and a member of the speaker's bureau for that organization. Mary's interest in the political system resulted in her involvement in several political campaigns. She worked as the press secretary for state Rep. Gary Thompson's 1982 re-election campaigng campaigned for Bob Armstrong, a Democratic candidate for governorg and was selected to be a delegate to the state Democratic convention in the fall of 1982. Her first opportunity to be involved in a political campaign came when President Carter came to Abilene in 1980. Mel Hailey, associate professor of government, assigned Mary to the White House Office press staff during Carter's visit. After that first taste of political involve- ment Mary said she began moving toward political communication. Although she said she would always be involved in politics, she said her long-term goal was to get a doctorate in oral com- munication. And in January of 1983 she planned to enter the University of Texas at Austin to begin her graduate studies. "After 10 years, it was a real struggle to decide to come out here and go to school. I wish I could do something to encourage older women to come back to college, and have fun while they do it," she said. "I think I have enjoyed college more at 30 than I probably would have at 19 or 20." This page: Mary Wynn 328 Dean Adams Achievement Award FA- ,. Mig,
