SUBJECT: PSA: Alumni Tribute Awards call for nominations

DATE: April 19, 2007

The 26th Annual Alumni Tribute Awards is your opportunity to recognize the achievements of a Memorial University graduate you admire: a co-worker, colleague, mentor, protégé, friend or family member, or someone whose accomplishments you’ve admired from afar.
The only criterion for eligibility is that the person you nominate be a graduate of either Memorial College or any campus of Memorial University including Sir Wilfred Grenfell College or the Marine Institute. You may nominate him or her for one of four awards including: lifetime achievement, achievement under age 35, service to the community or volunteer service to Memorial University.
Nominations must be submitted to Alumni Affairs and Development by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 27, 2007. The successful recipients will be chosen by the Alumni Association Executive and announced in late August. The awards will be presented to the four outstanding alumni at a gala awards dinner set for October 25, 2007.
For information on the four awards or to view past recipients, visit the Memorial Alumni web site at www.munalum.ca/association/awards or contact the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development, Memorial University of Newfoundland, 20 Lambe’s Lane, St. John’s, NL, A1C 5S7, 1-877-700-4081 or 709-737-4354.
