Nominees Sought for 2023 Alumni Awards
Did you make a New Year’s resolution to lift up someone else? To cheer on someone for their accomplishments? To help another person receive credit for their good deeds? The University of Findlay’s Wolfe Center for Alumni, Parents and Friends currently is accepting applications for the 2023 Alumni Awards.
“We welcome nominations so that we may recognize and thank these outstanding individuals for their accomplishments,” said Nicole Burgy ’99, president of the Alumni Board of Governors.
Nominations will be reviewed by the Recognition Committee of the Alumni Association Board of Governors. Current UF faculty and staff are ineligible.
Awards in four categories are presented annually during the University’s homecoming celebration:
- Distinguished Alumni Award – presented to UF alumni who have exhibited the highest standards of individual achievement in professional or personal endeavors, who have demonstrated loyalty and support to UF, and contributed to the advancement of all humanity. Nominees must have graduated more than 10 years ago.
- Old Main Award – presented to UF alumni who have demonstrated distinctive achievements in a career, civic involvement, or service to the University and are younger than 36.
- Gold Medallion Award – presented posthumously to alumni who had superb records of distinguished career accomplishments and made outstanding contributions to their profession, the University, or their community but were not recognized by UF prior to their death.
- Arch Award – presented to a member of the Findlay community who has demonstrated loyalty and support to the University with at least 15 years of service, but does not hold a degree from UF.
Nomination forms can be found at www.findlay.edu/alumni, and must be submitted by February 28.
The awards will be presented during the 2023 Homecoming celebration September 29, 30 and October 1.
