· Alumni Achievement Award, recognizing an individual who attended (but did not graduate from) EKU and who has achieved prominence professionally, made significant contributions to society, and actively served others, thus reflecting extraordinary credit to the University.

“We love learning about the wonderful things our alumni and are doing in their personal and professional pursuits, and welcome the opportunity to celebrate their successes in this very special way,” said Kari Martin, assistant vice president for alumni and donor engagement.
All nominations will be reviewed by the Alumni Awards and Recognition Committee, and the International Alumni Association Board will make the final decisions.
“One of the most important activities in which the Alumni Board can engage is recognizing the valuable, transformational and persistent contributions that alumni have made to their community and to their alma mater,” said Board President Tom Martin. “From the Young Alumni Award to the Hall of Distinguished Alumni – the highest recognition bestowed upon an alum – our Awards and Recognition Committee works the entire academic year to identify deserving alumni from an abundance of deserving candidates.”
Nominations may be submitted online at www.alumni.eku.edu/awards. The deadline is Friday, April 1. All honorees will be recognized at a special alumni awards ceremony scheduled for EKU’s inaugural Homecoming and Reunion Weekend Oct. 21-23.
