ABOUT THE AWARD

The purpose of the Rising Star Award is to recognize and honor motivated young alumni who have excelled beyond the norm early in their careers, or young alumni who exhibit leadership, involvement, and hold key volunteer positions on campus or within the alumni association.

There are two Rising Star Awards – one for service and the other for achievement.
