The Lamar University Foundation Inc. will host a program and reception Wednesday, Nov. 30, to honor the four recipients of the 2011 Julie and Ben Rogers Community Service Award.

Regina Rogers, representing the Rogers family, will present the awards during a program in the Dr. Richard L. Price Auditorium of the John Gray Center, 855 Jim Gilligan Way in Beaumont. The program will begin at 3 p.m., preceding a reception.

Rogers will present the awards to:

* Janet Hamilton, chair, Department of Allied Health, Lamar State College-Port Arthur.
* Antoinette Mays, administrative assistant, Office of Alumni Affairs, Lamar University.
* David Mosley, institutional effectiveness and grants coordinator, Lamar Institute of Technology.

Presidents of the four institutions will profile the recipients and the contributions that led to their selection for the prestigious honor.

The Rogers family established the award in 1979 to encourage Lamar faculty and staff members to volunteer their services and talents to benefit the community. The Lamar University Foundation maintains an endowment that provides for the award.
