Kent State Seeks Nominations for Alumni Awards

The Kent State University Alumni Association is seeking nominations for the Alumni Awards. These awards recognize Kent State graduates in the area of leadership, service, character and professional development.

“The alumni association is proud to recognize notable, accomplished graduates,” says Joy Foreman, assistant director of alumni relations. “These awards bring distinction not only to the alumni who receive them, but also to the university as they showcase the contributions Kent State graduates make to their professions and society.”

Five individual alumni awards will be granted along with three awards for alumni association chapters and area representatives. Individuals can choose to nominate themselves or other deserving Kent State graduates.

“We encourage everyone to nominate a graduate he or she feels is deserving of recognition,” Foreman says. “The alumni association wants alumni whose achievements represent Kent State’s spirit, character and tradition of excellence to be acknowledged.”

Nominations will be accepted until Dec. 31. Award recipients will be notified the following spring and recognized at the 2014 Kent State Homecoming.
