Rep. Regula to Receive NAICU Advocacy Award

U.S. Representative Ralph Regula will receive well-deserved recognition for his long support of independent colleges when he receives the 15th Annual Award for Advocacy of Independent Higher Education on February 5 from the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio. The 16th District Republican from Navarre has served 18 terms in Congress, including six years as chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education. As a former House education committee staffer, I can attest to his tireless efforts in support of higher education. The award will be a fitting tribute to a public servant who will retire this year.
