Alumni Association Accepting Nominations for New Alumni Awards
(Aug. 7, 2013) The Armstrong Alumni Association announces the merger of the Armstrong Notables and Armstrong Alumni Awards. The two award categories have been combined into one seamless program designed to recognize and honor the most outstanding alumni.
The Armstrong Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Alumni Awards. The deadline for nominations is Aug. 23, 2013. Awards will be presented on Oct. 5.
Nominations may be submitted by alumni, faculty, staff, students, and trustees in the following categories:
Notable Alumni – Notable Alumni is a lifelong honor; once a Notable, always a Notable. Being named a Notable qualifies you for consideration for the higher awards in every subsequent year.
Outstanding Alumni – Recognized particularly for service to the university, only one Outstanding Alumna or Alumnus is selected each year from the qualified (Notable Alumni) selected in that year and in previous years.
Distinguished Alumni – Recognized particularly for achievement in a profession or community service, only one Distinguished Alumna or Alumnus is selected each year from the qualified (Notable Alumni) selected in that year and in previous years.
Eminent Alumni – The Eminent Alumni Award is not awarded every year. It is only awarded as needed, in cases of extreme merit.
An individual may potentially receive all four awards over the course of time.
