Young Alumni Achievement Award
MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY YOUNG ALUMNI ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
The Young Alumni Achievement Award recognizes Millersville University graduates who are outstanding in their profession.
The Young Alumni Achievement Award was created in 2012 to recognize Millersville University baccalaureate graduates identified as being outstanding in their professions (careers) and to present such alumni to current Millersville University students as examples of exemplar achievement. All baccalaureate graduates of Millersville University, between 5-20 years at time of nomination, who have recorded notable accomplishments in their chosen professions are eligible for this award. The young alumni achievers will be invited to hold seminars, presentations and/or panel discussions on topics related to their professions.
The Nominations & Awards Committee of the Millersville University Alumni Association works in conjunction with the Deans of Millersville University’s three undergraduate schools to nominate, identify and select candidates for the award.
Who Is Eligible
Those who have graduated from Millersville University within the past 5-20 years who have recorded notable accomplishments in their chosen professions are eligible.
