2008 Honorary Recognition and Distinguished Service Award call for nominations

I am pleased to announce and invite nominations for the 2008 College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Honorary Recognition Award and Distinguished Service Award. Since 1909 the College has recognized nearly 450 individuals for outstanding service. Each has given unselfishly of time and talent, improved the lives of many, and enriched society for all of us. In 1994, the College introduced the Distinguished Service Award to recognize University faculty and staff members for meritorious service to the College and University, to citizens of Wisconsin and to people around the nation and the world.

Attached is nomination information for each award and a list of recent honorees. Nominations are due April 18, 2008. As you consider possible nominees, I encourage you to think about those individuals with whom you have worked over the years who have demonstrated leadership and been an inspiration to others in agriculture, natural resources and/or the life sciences.

The CALS Honorary Recognition Banquet is an opportunity to celebrate the connection between the College and its friends, supporters and clientele. The banquet will occur on October 23, 2008 in the Great Hall, Memorial Union, UW-Madison. Feel free to contact Bonnie Jaedike, CALS Office of Alumni Affairs ( , 608-262-1445) for additional information.
