Alumni Association accepting award nominations
March 24, 2011Tweet
This fall, the Alumni Association plans to honor some of Binghamton University’s most accomplished graduates through its Special Recognition Awards Program. If you know of a graduate who has excelled in service to his or her profession, community, or the University, submit your nominations online by June 1. Each nomination should include a statement explaining why the candidate is worthy of an award. The Alumni Association will invite recipients back to campus for an awards ceremony in the fall. You can find out more about the program and make a nomination by visiting the “About Us” section at binghamton.edu/alumni.
Awards to be presented:

Bartle Distinguished Alumnus Award recognizes and honors a graduate who has distinguished himself or herself since graduating from the University and serves as a memorial to Dr. Glenn G.
