Every day UNCG alumni are making a difference. Whether it's volunteering in their communities or giving their all in classrooms, hospitals or boardrooms, our alumni change the world for the better. Don't you think some deserve some special recognition?
Each year the UNCG Alumni Association recognizes as many as two outstanding alumni who have exemplified the university's service motto whether in their profession, community or university for the Alumni Distinguished Service Award. The impact can be local or it can be at the state or national level.
In addition to making a difference, the recipient(s) must exemplify creative and continuous personal growth and a willingness to embrace our changing world.
The Young Alumni Award is given to an alumnus 40 years old or younger who has made exceptional achievements and significant contributions to their profession, community or university.
The recipient should exemplify outstanding professional and personal development either through traditional channels or innovative approaches.
The deadline for submitting nominations for both awards is Jan. 5. To receive a nomination form, please visit www.uncg.edu/ala/awards.html, call the Alumni Office at (336) 334-5696 or email Melissa Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
