Prestigious Alumni Awards call for nominations

As this is WIC’s 35th year, the Alumni Committee is reaching out to the WIC Community to gather nominations of notable alumni who have contributed to their communities in one of the following areas: Philanthropy, the Arts, Personal Achievement or Business. Award recipients embody the five criteria for nomination: Vision and Leadership; Innovation and Achievement; Impact; Growth/Development Strategy; and Community Involvement and Contribution. Additional information about each award category can be found here.

If you have a nomination that you would like to submit, the following is required:

  • Name
  • Graduation year
  • Award category
  • Profession and accomplishments/reason for nomination
  • Contact information of nominator and nominee (email and/or phone)
  • If the nominator has links to any websites or resources highlighting the nominee’s achievements, this would also be most helpful.

The deadline to submit nominations is December 1, 2017. Please submit to the Alumni Committee via email here.

The Prestigious Alumni Awards are presented to alumni who have made significant contributions in their professional or personal lives in the areas of Philanthropy, Business, Arts, and Personal Achievement. Candidates can be self-nominated or brought forward by alumni, faculty, family, friends or students and are then deliberated upon by the Selection Committee who carefully consider the five criteria for nomination: Vision and Leadership; Innovation and Achievement; Impact; Growth/ Development Strategy; and Community Involvement and Contribution. The awards are presented annually. This evening is a convening of current family members, Alumni, past recipients, current recipients, friends, and family to celebrate the achievements of the award recipients but also to join together in our shared experience as WICers. This year’s celebration is taking place at Hotel Arts on April 20, 2017.
