    "Bucknam Selected to Northern Iowa HPELS Hall of Excellence

    The Hall of Excellence Award Committee voted UNANIMOUSLY to induct Arkansas men’s track & field/cross country head coach Chris Bucknam into the HPELS Hall of Excellence. Bucknam’s induction will take place Oct. 5 on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa.

    “I’m not sure I’m worthy of this recognition, but I’m feeling an incredible sense of pride and accomplishment having been chosen for this honor,” said head coach Chris Bucknam. 'To be included in Hall of Excellence with so many of my mentors, former professors and friends is an unbelievable honor. If not for Dr. Bill Thrall, Dr. Sue Doody, Dr. Lyle Schwartzenbach, Lynn King and many others, who gave me the opportunity and encouragement to teach and coach while I pursued my Master’s Degree, I would not be where I am today. In addition, the years of teaching in HPELS honed my coaching skills.'”
