The Keylon Braxton Memorial Award is given to one undergraduate within the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
This award was first developed in memory of Keylon Braxton, former advisor to the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Student Council. It serves to honor his service and dedication to the college. Each year, the award is used to recognize an individual that reflects Keylon’s exceptional motivation and enthusiasm for the college and its students. The recipient will receive an individual plaque, have their name engraved on the Keylon Braxton Memorial plaque located in 116 Agricultural Hall and be featured in CALS publications.
Faculty, staff, organizations, and individual students are encouraged to nominate individuals by entering the name and email of the student and a few sentences why he or she exemplifies what the award stands for. Moreover, students are also encouraged to nominate themselves. Nominated individuals are expected to have developed lasting legacies in CALS.
All nominations can be entered below.
Nominations are due by Wednesday, March 20th at noon. Applications, to be filled out by nominees, are due by April 1st. Finalists will be expected to give a short presentation on how they have influenced the college during their years at the university.
