In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Guy Harvey to be Honored by NSU with President's Award for Excellence in Community Service

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will award world-renowned artist, scientist and researcher Guy Harvey, Ph.D., with one of NSU's newest awards, the President's Award for Excellence in Community Service. President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., will bestow the award upon Harvey and four others at the university's annual Celebration of Excellence event on Jan. 24, 2013.

The President's Excellence in Community Service Award recognizes superior professional engagement activities in the community by alumni, students, faculty, staff, and a member of the South Florida community. The awards encourage the ongoing pursuit of community service and exemplify NSU's "community" core value.

The awards are conferred upon individuals (one in each category) who demonstrate significant contributions to the community while exemplifying all eight of NSU's core values. This year's five honorees were selected from 79 total submitted nominations. 

"This award defines what it means to be an outstanding citizen and member of the NSU community," said George Hanbury, Ph.D. "I can't think of someone more deserving of the Excellence in Community Service Award than Guy Harvey, a man who tirelessly gives back to this community, and the global community, in so many ways."

Guy Harvey is one of the world's leading marine biologists, painters and conservationists. Harvey is a unique blend of artist, scientist, diver, angler, conservationist and explorer, fiercely devoted to his family and his love of the sea. Growing up in Jamaica, Guy spent many hours fishing and diving with his father along the Island's south coast. He was obsessed with the creatures of the sea and began drawing pictures of the many different fish he observed. Guy's artwork can be found in art exhibits, stores, galleries, restaurants and at fishing tournaments.

A passion for the beauty and wonder of the underwater world has driven Harvey to be a leading conservationist and advocate for the protection of our environment. He dedicates much of his talent, time and resources to programs that protect our oceans, fish population and reef systems. The Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University's Oceanographic Center and The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation have taken on a leadership role in providing the scientific information necessary to understand and protect the world's fish resources and biodiversity from continued decline.

Harvey is the past recipient of many awards and distinctions, including: the International Swimming Hall of Fame Gold Medallion Award; the Vasco Nunez de Balboa Grand Cross, the highest honor the country of Panama bestows on a non-Panamanian; and the first ever IGFA Lifetime Achievement Award from the World Fishing Awards Committee, as well as being inducted into the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame for his contributions to the sport fishing community.

The 2013 honorees are:
