Pitt-Greensburg Alumni Association seeking nominees for annual awards

Tom Davidson
Pitt Greensburg’s alumni association is seeking nominations for its annual awards.

The Pitt-Greensburg Alumni Association is accepting nominations through July 8 for the three awards is presents each year.

The awards, Alumnus of Distinction, Volunteer Excellence, and Young Alumni Leadership, recognize Pitt-Greensburg alumni for their professional accomplishments, service to their communities, and commitment to the Pitt-Greensburg.

The Alumnus of Distinction Award, established in 2001, is the highest honor given by the association to an individual. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their outstanding level of professional achievement, service to the community, service to the University of Pittsburgh, any special recognition or honors, and other special efforts or success. The honoree will also be asked to serve as the Alumni Marshall during Commencement activities in April of the same academic year.

The Volunteer Excellence Award was established in 2009 to recognize alumni who volunteer their time to the association and the University. When designating an alumnus or alumna as a particular year’s Volunteer of Excellence, his or her award certificate indicates that they have been designated as such, “for outstanding service to the Alumni Association and the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.”

The Young Alumni Leadership Award, initiated in 2015, recognizes established and future leaders among Pitt-Greensburg’s young alumni. It was created to recognize and honor Pitt-Greensburg young alumni, ages 35 and under, for their accomplishments and service.

The winners will be feted at a dinner during the campus’s Blue & Gold Celebration, which is held in October.

Details and nomination forms (self-nominations are accepted) for each award may be accessed here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
