WELCOME THE MICHAEL W. RICK ARD LEGACY Michael W. Rickard lived and breathed Owens Express athletics for parts of four decades, starting as an Owens student in the late 1970s until the time of his unexpected death in December 2010. The 1982 Owens alumnus worked for the College for 25 years, the last 10 as Athletic Director. The Express men’s basketball team is wearing a “MR” patch on its uniforms to honor his legacy this season. He was the No. 1 fan of the Owens Express, and the College has continued his legacy by naming the main athletics hallway The Michael W. Rickard StudentAthlete Hall of Excellence. Located in the Student Health and Activities Center, it showcases the College’s 2 national championship teams, 2 national runners-up, 48 conference titles, 38 NJCAA athletic All-American and 69 NJCAA academic All-Americans. The Athletic Dept. also has started the Michael W. Rickard Student-Athlete Award, which will be presented annually to one student-athlete who embodies excellence in community service, academics and athletics. The Owens Community College Alumni Association has established The Michael W. Rickard Memorial Fund, at the Owens Community College Foundation, with an initial gift of $10,000 that will provide program funds for the Athletic Dept. as well as scholarships for students.
