2005 AAHPERD Recognition Awards


LUTHER HALSEY GULICK Award

The Luther Halsey Gulick Medal, designed by R. Tait McKenzie, is regarded as the highest honor of the Alliance in recognition of long and distinguished service to one or more of the professions.

Norman L. Buddy Gilchrest, professor emeritus at the school of education at Baylor University, has had a distinguished professional career spanning almost five decades. During his tenure at Baylor, he was named the director of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Graduate Studies, and he served on committees and councils whose work reshaped the administrative structure of the university. He takes the greatest pleasure, however, from having created, developed, and guided--for more than two decades--the Outdoor Adventure Activity program at Baylor University.

Buddy's professional life combines outstanding academic accomplishments, extensive and productive professional leadership, and exceptional achievements in his professional field, adventure education. He is equally adept in the classroom and board room, whether teaching students while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, giving the keynote address at an international conference, or experiencing North America by riding a bicycle from Alaska to Florida. Along his journey, he has given greatly to his family, students, colleagues, professional organizations, and community, while pursuing his extraordinary dreams and living a life of adventure on a grand scale.

Buddy's contributions to leadership of the American Alliance and its associations are vast. He has served as president of four professional associations: American Association for Leisure and Recreation, American Leisure Academy, Texas Association for HPERD, and Texas Outdoor Education Association. Buddy also served on the Alliance Board of Governors for five terms, as well as on numerous Alliance committees. His wisdom was further shared with an appointment to the Ad Hoc Association Restructuring Committee. He was elected as a charter member of the North American Society, and he has served on its nominating committee for the last three years.

Buddy is a scholar and a much-sought-after speaker. He has authored 46 publications and is an accomplished photographer. He has shared his work in venues around the world and has an unquenchable passion for adventure.

One of the six criteria for the Gulick Medal states that it is awarded to the type of person whose life and contributions inspire youths to live vigorously, courageously, and freely as citizens. This statement describes Buddy's professional and personal life. AAHPERD takes great pleasure in bestowing on him the most prestigious 2005 Luther Halsey Gulick Award.

Fran Cleland Donnelly is a full professor at West Chester University, where she serves as assistant chair in kinesiology and teaches in the areas of physical education pedagogy and dance.
