Ezra Anderson receives Angel Unaware Award


Williamsburg, KY- University of the Cumberlands (UC) presented Ezra Keegan Anderson (Florissant, Missouri) with the Angel Unaware Award during the Fifty-Fifth Annual Honors Day on Sunday, April 27, 2014 in the Gatliff Chapel.

The Angel Unaware Award recipient is selected by Luther and Rosemary Smith to recognize a University of the Cumberlands undergraduate student who selflessly helps others through acts and deeds of kindness, who give of themselves far beyond what is expected, who is always there to land a helping hand, and who does so without expecting recognition.

In addition to the award, Anderson’s name will be engraved on a plaque displayed on campus, and a monetary donation will be made to one of the clubs or organizations of the college at the recommendation of the recipient and in the name of the “Angel Unaware.”

While at UC, Anderson has been a game room supervisor, an Insights STAR, and a member of the Patriot/Discovery day student panel. He has been a member of the Track and Field team. He has added a lot to campus as co-founder of the successful Kingdom productions, an organization whose purpose is to engage students in culture through faith, comedic poetry and debates on real life issues. His good work has continued to the end of his undergraduate career with his April collaboration with Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) to organize a massive campus initiative to raise money and awareness to combat Human Trafficking in the United States.

In addition, Anderson was named to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Who’s Who is open to juniors and seniors who have been selected by the faculty and staff. These students have excelled in one or more of the following areas: participation and leadership in academic and extracurricular activities; citizenship and service to the school and community; and potential for future achievement.

Anderson is the son of Deleon and Mannetta Piggee of Florissant, Missouri. He is completing a degree in Psychology with a minor in Theatre Arts. He brings his talents for blending compassion and leadership to blend both majors into a commitment to helping others.
