On May 25 the Kiwanis Club of Evanston honored Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl for her efforts to enhance the relationship between the City and Northwestern University. Mayor Tisdahl received the highest honor bestowed by a local Kiwanis group, the Hixson Award for outstanding service, named for the first president of Kiwanis International.  A second Hixson Award went to Northwestern University president Dr. Morton Schapiro for his work with Mayor Tisdahl to create a greater spirit of cooperation between Northwestern and Evanston. Dr. Shapiro was not able to attend the ceremony because of his daughter’s college graduation.
