Distinguished service to Brenau awarded to Fred Bentley

Brenau University bestowed its two highest nonacademic honors Thursday night during the President's Club dinner at the Chattahoochee Country Club.

Charles E. "Gus" Whalen and Fred Bentley were chosen through a collaborative decision by the university president and board of trustees.

"Both of these men in different ways share the vision that Brenau is a very special institution, and their support for Brenau has helped create components that set Brenau apart from other colleges and universities," said Brenau president Ed Schrader in news release.
