URI Alumni Association seeking nominees for Excellence
KINGSTON, R.I.-September 10, 1999 -- The University of Rhode Island Alumni
Association is seeking nominees for its Excellence Awards for the year 2000.
While the committee selecting the award recipients is representative
of the University community, you may be in a unique position to know alumni
who deserve this honor, but who are unknown to committee members.
Excellence awards are given to alumni who have demonstrated distinction
in one of the following areas: arts, business, community service, education,
professional achievement, research and science and technology. The awards
will be presented during Alumni Weekend next June.
The Association is asking those responding to submit the name of the
nominee, graduation class year, address, field of achievement, as well as
the name of the person making recommendation, address and phone number.
Please make 20 copies of the information and mail to Awards Committee, c/o
Christopher Barnett '78, chair URI Alumni Association, 12 Davis Hall, 10
Lippitt Road, Kingston, RI, 02881-2011. Please attach additional and substantial
supporting documentation, resume and/or news clippings, etc., that will
help the committee with its decision.
