Kent State Seeks Nomination for Alumni Awards

The Kent State University Alumni Association is seeking nominations for the Alumni Awards. These awards recognize graduates who, through leadership, character and hard work, have made exceptional contributions in their chosen field, in their communities and at Kent State.Six alumni and one student were recognized at Kent State University’s 2017 Alumni Awards Ceremony in October.

“The alumni association is proud to recognize notable, accomplished graduates,” says Lori Randorf, assistant vice president of alumni relations at Kent State. “These awards shine a light on graduates who have attained distinguished career success and have performed outstanding service to their community, Kent State University or both.”

Five alumni awards will be granted along with one student award. Individuals can choose to nominate themselves or others.

“We encourage everyone to nominate Golden Flashes they feel are deserving of recognition,” Ms. Randorf says. “We are looking for alumni whose achievements represent Kent State’s spirit, character and tradition of excellence.”

Nominations will be accepted until Dec. 31. Award recipients will be notified the following spring and recognized at the Alumni Awards Ceremony held in the fall of 2018.
