The nomination deadline is fast approaching for the CALS 2010 Honorary Recognition, Distinguished Alumni and Distinguished Service awards. Nominations are due May 7.
Over the past 100 years, the College has recognized over 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. In 2009, the College marked 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.
Attached is nomination information for each award and a list of recent honorees. Nominations are due May 7, 2010. 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 stakeholders. The banquet will be held on October 21, 2010 in the Great Hall, Memorial Union, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
