Dr. John Henry Felix graduated from Walden in 1975 with a PhD in Public Policy and Administration. He currently serves as the executive chair and chief operating officer of the Hawaii Medical Assurance Association, but is also a partner/owner in several other businesses and remains dedicated to positive social change in Hawaii and around the world.

Felix’s dedication to service started early; he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 14, and has been nationally recognized for his continued service to the Boy Scouts of America. Felix was the first American awarded the International Red Cross Medal of Honor in 1983 and he has been nationally and internationally recognized for his service to the American Red Cross and March of Dimes.

This year we received a record 56 nominations, representing 18 class years and 21 degree programs.

We applaud the following four finalists for their commitment to effecting positive social change in their communities:
Laura Bulluck ’10, MS in Nonprofit Management and Leadership
Dr. Raymond Chimezie ’13, PhD in Public Health
Dr. Rafael Matos ’13, PhD in Psychology
Dr. Ramen Saggu ’15, PhD in Psychology

The Outstanding Alumni Award is granted each year to a graduate who exemplifies our mission to effect positive social change by making an impact on his or her profession, discipline, or community. The recipient of the award is honored at an awards dinner during commencement weekend each summer. Nominations for the 2017 award will open in the spring.
