Medal
The Order of Vandalia award dates back to 1960 when Elvis J. Stahr, then president of West Virginia University, outlined his idea for a special honor bestowed upon the most loyal servants to West Virginia University. He assigned the task of designing such an award to then WVU administrators Donovan Bond, Joseph Gluck, and David Jacobs.
