[March 28, 2009]  O\BERLIN, Ohio -- The National Association of College Stores presented the prestigious Aspen Award to Randal H. Storm, manager of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary Bookstore, Lincoln, Ill.

The Aspen Award was created by NACS to recognize collegiate retailers who have made consistent contributions to the professional development of others.

The award was named for the aspen tree, which symbolizes strength in the face of adversity, growth, perseverance, protection and continuity.

Storm is "an inspiring facilitator with a wonderful ability to capture -- and to keep -- the attention of a group. He is a mentor to many and is a truly caring individual who guides people in the right direction without much fanfare," said one of his nominators.

Storm has contributed to the industry in many ways, including serving as a member of the NACS board of trustees and being an avid supporter of NACS education. He has continuously volunteered for events and facilitated countless NACS educational programs at national, state and regional association meetings. He is a certified collegiate retailer, or CCR, an earned professional designation awarded by NACS.


To further honor Storm, a personalized brick will be laid at the NACS headquarters in Oberlin, Ohio, in his name.

Prior recipients of the Aspen Award are:

  • 2008 -- Danny Key, CCR, director, Wingate University Bookstore

  • 2007 -- Dennis A. Mekelburg, CCR, associate director, Arizona State University Bookstore

  • 2006 -- Terence Murphy, manager, Holyoke Community College Bookstore

  • 2005 -- Maria L. Murtagh, director, Student Store University of the Pacific
