Wanted: Young alumnus to honor
June 04, 2009
Bryan College will present its first Young Alumnus of the Year award at homecoming in October, and the Alumni staff is looking for an alum to honor.
Alumni Director David Tromanhauser said the new award is being made to recognize the contributions of alumni early in their careers. “We have always honored alumni who have a long record of service, but younger alumni just starting their careers often have accomplishments that are worthy of recognition as well,” he said. “The Young Alum presentation will be part of our homecoming celebration to point out the amazing achievements of our alumni fresh out of Bryan.”
To qualify for the award, an alum must have graduated within the past 10 years, must have distinguished himself or herself academically, professionally or in community service, and must demonstrate a strong relationship with Bryan College.
“We encourage alumni and friends of the college to nominate recent graduates for the award,” Mr. Tromanhauser said. “Visit the alumni page on the Bryan web site to nominate a graduate or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your recommendations.”
At the same time, nominations are invited for the Alumnus of the Year award. This award recognizes a graduate with a distinguished record that reflects honor on Bryan College over his or her career.
“These awards are the highest honors the Alumni office can bestow on graduates, and we want to make sure we know about alumni who deserve this type of recognition,” Mr. Tromanhauser said. “Please visit the web site or contact our office and help us bring honor to whom honor is due.”
