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,” Randorf said. “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 Alumni Awards Ceremony held in the fall of 2016.
