Oct 06, 2017

On Saturday, Sept. 30, the Buena Vista University (BVU) National Alumni Association honored Randy and Jane Fehr, of Washington with the 2017 Wendell Halverson Outstanding Friend Award at a special ceremony for their service to the University and their community.

The award is named in honor of BVU’s 15th president and recognizes individuals who, although not alumni of the University, have demonstrated a commitment to BVU and its students.

Both Randy and Jane are retired employees of BVU.

Jane worked as a cataloguer in the BVU Library from 1991-2004, while Randy served as the vice president for business services for over 18 years.

Following his retirement in 2007, the University named the Fehr Facilities Building in honor of Randy’s tenure. Randy and Jane are also loyal donors to the institution and are members of the Z.Z. White Heritage Society and the Order of the Arch.

The couple met at Park College in Parkville, Mo., where they both graduated in 1964. Randy graduated with a degree in economics, and went on to receive his master’s degree in higher education administration from Central Michigan University shortly before the family moved to Storm Lake in 1989.

Jane graduated from Park College with a degree in education and received a master’s degree in education and library science from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1978.

Randy and Jane continue to be involved in their community and professional organizations.

Randy is a member of the Central Bank Board of Directors and has served as a Rotarian for the Storm Lake Rotary Club for over thirty years.

Randy and Jane are active members of the United Presbyterian Church, and are part of several classic car clubs, including the Society for the Encouragement of Restoration and Preservation of Antique Cars Incorporated (SERPACI), and the Corn Country Cruisers.

The couple have two children, Tim and Robin, and four grandchildren, Rachel, Lauren, Brandon, and Allison.

Since 1891, Buena Vista University has prepared students for lifelong success and blends liberal arts with real-world applications. Our traditional campus on the shores of Storm Lake hosts students in a variety of majors and pre-professional programs, including elementary, secondary, and special education; business and accounting; and biological and chemical sciences. Our 16 degree-completion locations, online, and graduate programs expand student potential with a pace and academic rigor designed for working adults and a variety of class formats that make scheduling even more convenient.

With an average scholarship of more than 50 percent off of tuition, BVU is an affordable option for all students. Visit www.bvu.edu.
