CALS will present its Honorary Recognition Award to Debra Crave and Michael Krutza and its Distinguished Service Award to Joachim von Elbe. Hector DeLuca and Richard Scheller will both receive the new Distinguished Alumni Award.
Over the past 100 years, the College has recognized nearly 500 individuals for their outstanding service with the Honorary Recognition Award. Each has given unselfishly of time and talent, improved the lives of many, and enriched society for us all.
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. This year the College is proud to mark the inaugural year of the Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognizes a career of outstanding achievement through extraordinary contributions to one’s chosen field or an exemplary record of public service.
