CIU Board Member Honored

October 27, 2014

Longtime Columbia International University board member and supporter Marvin Schuster and his wife Ruth were presented with the Servant Leadership Award from the Pastoral Institute in their hometown of Columbus, Georgia. The honor is presented to “an extraordinary couple who has passion and desire for serving others.”

Marvin Schuster owns and operates Burger King Restaurants throughout the Southeast, but says teaching the Bible for 35 to 40 years has been one of the most meaningful experiences of his life. Ruth Schuster has delivered Meals on Wheels to the homeless for more than 28 years, while both have been involved with their local United Way. The Schusters, who have been married for more than 28 years, were also recognized for their love of community, commitment to their faith and devotion to family qualities.

The Schuster building on the CIU campus is named for Marvin and Ruth Schuster.
