WTAMU Alumni Association Seeking Nominations for 2013 Awards
CANYON, Texas—Nominations are being accepted for the West Texas A&M University Alumni Association’s annual Distinguished Alumnus Award as well as for the 2013 University Excellence Award. Nominations for both awards will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 14.
The Distinguished Alumnus Award is presented to WTAMU graduates who hold at least one degree from the University, who are professionally successful and who contribute to the betterment of the University, the Alumni Association, society and their profession.
The University Excellence Award is presented to a WTAMU staff or faculty member with at least three years of outstanding service to WTAMU, its students, the community and their profession.
Winners of the coveted awards will be officially recognized during an awards presentation at the Alumni Association’s annual Phoenix Banquet in the spring.
“These awards complement the Alumni Association’s mission of recognizing the successes and accomplishments of our graduates, as well as acknowledging the hard work and commitment of our faculty and staff,” Becky Stogner, director of WTAMU’s Alumni Association, said. “I encourage anyone connected with the University to nominate individuals for one or both awards.”
Individuals who were nominated in 2011 and 2012, but not selected either year, will automatically be considered for the awards this year. Background information and letters in support of nominees are encouraged.
