Nominations open for 2011 Honorary Recognition, Distinguished Service, Distinguished Alumni awards

I am pleased to invite nominations for the 2011 College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Honorary Recognition Award, Distinguished Service Award, and Distinguished Alumni Award.

Since 1909, the College has recognized over 500 individuals for their outstanding service and leadership in the areas of agriculture, life sciences, natural resources and social science with the Honorary Recognition Award.  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 CALS alumna or alumnus with a career of outstanding achievement through extraordinary contributions to one’s chosen field or an exemplary record of public service.

Nomination information for each award and a listing of past honorees is available at are due April 22, 2011. As you consider possible nominees, I encourage you to think about those individuals who have demonstrated leadership and been an inspiration to others in agriculture, natural resources and/or the life sciences.
