Alumni recognized for achievements, service, and support
In 2014, the School of Education established a new tradition to celebrate and recognize alumni who have made significant contributions to society and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of excellence in the school. Recipients of this award are accomplished in three distinct areas; professional achievement, service to society and service and support to the School of Education.
The faculty from each program area had the opportunity to select a recipient. Awardees were recognized at the Fall Alumni Brunch in November. We anticipate this becoming an annual tradition at the fall alumni reception.
