Dustin Cox, winner of the 2008 Hon Kachina Volunteer Award

Everybody knows, the main reason to go to college is to get free pizza at meetings of random honoraries, service clubs, and laboratory groups.

Dustin Cox (’04) isn’t a college student anymore, but he’s still getting free food. Tonight, it’s a black-tie-optional dinner, presented by the Hon Kachina Council.

For his untiring work with Anytown Arizona, and founding A-Town at UA, Dustin has been named one of eight recipients of the Hon Kachina Volunteer Award–essentially the Nobel Peace Prize of Arizona.

Here’s the story on the Scholars website. Dustin is, if our records are accurate, the second Scholar to receive the honor, joining Alon Unger (’94), who won for his HIV/AIDS work in the community.
