2019 Distinguished Award Winner: Oliver Dozier

April 30, 2019

04/29/2019

This week, we will be recognizing each of the 2019 Distinguished Service Award recipients.

The Distinguished Service Award winners are the institution’s most outstanding graduates because of their leadership, scholarship and citizenship. Faculty, staff, advisers to student organizations, and other members of the campus community submit nominations for the prestigious awards.

All of the recipients have achieved excellent academic records and provided countless hours of service to the community, their classmates, campus organizations, their departments and colleges, and to Arkansas State University. A committee comprised of students, faculty, staff and previous Wilson Award recipients makes the final selections.

Today’s featured recipient is Oliver Dozier of Paragould.

Dozier will graduate in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in biological sciences with an emphasis in pre-professional studies from the College of Sciences and Mathematics. While at A-State, he made the Chancellor’s List and Honors College Director’s List every semester he has been enrolled. He was inducted into Phi Kappa Phi honor society as a junior.

Ready to embark on a career in dentistry, Dozier has already been accepted into two dental schools and received a $15,000 scholarship from one as its top candidate.

He has served as a senator in the SGA since his sophomore year. Following the conclusion of the 2018 spring semester, he was nominated and elected by the Senate to serve as president pro tempore for the 2018-19 academic year. Dozier also serves as the president of the Arkansas State Pre-Professional Club, is a member of the student conduct board, the Title IX hearing committee, student organization chairman for St. Jude Up ‘til Dawn, action fund committee board member, Honors College ambassador, Miracle League volunteer baseball coach, food pantry volunteer and a volunteer for Arkansas Mission of Mercy (a traveling free dental clinic).

Since 2017, Dozier has worked as a researcher at the Arkansas Biosciences Institute and is working on his Honors senior thesis project after receiving an internally funded student undergraduate research fellowship.
