The highest honor bestowed by the Alumni Association is the Golden Award. Selection is based on outstanding service to the University or the Alumni Association and distinguished leadership in the recipient's career or community. The first award was presented to D. Archie Peterson in 1967. Since that time, more than 80 individuals have been recognized.
The 2015 event will honor Linda Christianson, Den Schultz and Sandra Starr and the Young Alumni achievement award will be presented to Dr. Tami Jollie-Trottier.
This event will be held on Thursday, September 17 at 6 p.m. in the Student Center Conference Rooms. Tickets for this event are $30 and may be reserved by calling the Alumni Office at 858-3234.
The criteria for the Young Alumni Achievement Award is the same as the Golden Award with one exception. The nominee must be between the ages of 21-39 to receive the Young Alumni Achievement Award.
