Every year ASU’S Student Government Association presents one family with the prestigious honor of Red Wolf Family of the Year.

The chosen family for 2012 was the Calaways, of Jonesboro. This family of six has shown outstanding commitment and dedication to ASU for numerous years.  The family was presented the award Dec. 1 during the first time-out of ASU’s final home football game this season. The Calaways were presented with a plaque as the award was announced.

The Calaway family includes Elizabeth Suiter-Calaway, mother, and Dennis Calaway, father, both alumni of ASU. They have continued to instill a Red Wolf Legacy in their four children: Sean, Katie, Bridget and Sarah.

Dennis earned a master’s degree in finance from ASU and used to teach in the College of Business.

Elizabeth earned her bachelor’s degree from ASU in early childhood education.

Sean is currently a senior at ASU, working toward a degree in criminology. His involvements with the university include the Honors College, the College of Republicans, Residence Life, Journey Campus and Pi Kappa Alpha, where he is currently serving as new member educator.

Katie is a junior, majoring in political science/pre-law. She is also highly involved within the university. Her extracurricular activities include Alpha Gamma Delta, where she serves as vice president of member development, the Honors College, SGA, where she is the current junior senator, Pre-law Club and the College of Republicans.

Bridget is a sophomore and is seeking a degree in chemistry/pre-med. Like her older siblings, Bridget is involved in the Honors College, Journey Campus and Alpha Gamma Delta, where she is vice president of scholarship.

Sarah is the youngest of the four children. She is currently a sophomore at Valley View High School.

 “I feel honored to have been chosen with my siblings for this amazing award,” Katie said. Our family has always had a connection with Arkansas State and I am so proud to be a part of this university. I thank the Student Government Association for choosing my family with this award.”
