Alumni Achievement Award

Each recipient of the Alumni Achievement Award must have attained notable achievement or made a lasting contribution within his or her professional, philanthropic or volunteer endeavors.  The career field itself is not sufficient to qualify a member of the alumni association for the award.  Instead, the accomplishments within the career field must meet the standard of being extraordinary.  Accomplishments may include, but are not limited to, documented career innovations, professional association memberships (especially elected office or committee involvement), formal honors and awards, and/or outstanding business development and achievement.

In addition, each recipient must be a contributing member of his or her community including, but not limited to, volunteer service and activities, organization membership, board and committee participation, and support of local and/or national charities.
