Kent State Seeks Nominations for Alumni Awards

Posted Oct. 16, 2013

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

“The alumni association is proud to recognize notable, accomplished graduates,” said Joy Foreman, Kent State’s assistant director of alumni relations. “These awards not only bring distinction to the alumni who receive them, but 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 they feel is deserving of recognition,” Foreman 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 2014 Kent State Homecoming.
