NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI
It’s that time of year again! Take a look around at your fellow Penn Staters and nominate alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers or have made significant contributions to society. Penn State Brandywine will select those alumni that best qualify to be recognized for their achievements at next spring’s Alumni Recognition event, to be held May 2, 2009. (Please save the date! More details will be coming shortly.)
This annual event honors outstanding alumni, and we ask your help in submitting names for consideration. The individual must have been a regular full-time student on the Brandywine campus for at least two years but does not need to be a graduate of Penn State Brandywine. Current members of the Advisory Board and current staff members are not eligible.
Our theme for this event will celebrate the international flavor of our campus so special consideration will be given to those alumni who are good global citizens. From the Oxfam Web site (http://www.oxfam.org/), the definition of a good global citizen is someone who:
- is aware of the wider world and has a sense of his or her role as a world citizen;
- respects and values diversity;
- has an understanding of how the world works economically, politically, socially, culturally, technologically and environmentally;
- is concerned about social injustice;
participates in and contributes to the community at a range of levels from local to global;
- is willing to act to make the world a more sustainable place;
takes responsibility for his or her actions.
It is so important for our current students to hear about the accomplishments of former Penn State Brandywine students, many of whom had to overcome obstacles to achieve their success. Please take a moment to complete the nomination form. Thank you for your assistance, and we hope you will attend the event on May 2 to celebrate our campus and recognize our alumni.
