TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Washburn University's jogging president is among the employees the Topeka school is honoring with Living Well awards.

The school says President Jerry Farley averages around eight miles a day, fitting in his fitness routine around his administrative duties. Farley also was praised for promoting a culture of health at the university.

Four other employees also were recognized: assistant psychology professor Jenna Glover practices and teaches meditation; secretary Toni Lewis has stopped smoking and has run two marathons; system and network administrator Clayton Peters plays in wheelchair basketball and softball leagues, and assistant sports information marketing director Jeremy Wrangler has shed more than 80 pounds.
