The Young Alumnus/Alumna Award recognizes established and future leaders among Western Carolina University’s young alumni.
The nominee must have graduated within the past ten years, be less than 40 years of age, attained a level of distinction in their chosen field of work, demonstrated a commitment to the service of others and shown the potential for future leadership/distinction. Preference will be given to those who, while enrolled at WCU, were active participants in the life of the university.
The University Affairs Committee of the WCU Alumni Association Board of Directors will review all nominations for the Young Alumnus/Alumna Award and select the recipient. The award will be presented to the recipient at the Chancellor’s Alumni Awards Ceremony during Homecoming Weekend.
