Excellence in Achievement by a Recent Graduate award
The NAU Alumni Association established the Excellence in Achievement by a Recent Graduate award in 2013
to recognize alumni who demonstrate accomplishments of significant importance at an early state in their
careers. Examples of award-worthy accomplishments are achievements in a vocational field that brings
distinction to the individual, recognition to Northern Arizona University, innovations to an industry or notable
benefit to a community.
The Excellence in Achievement by a Recent Graduate award is presented annually to recognize a young
alumna or alumnus who has achieved outstanding success in his or her professional career in a relatively
short amount of time. Service to NAU or the NAU Alumni Association is not a requirement. Nominees must
have graduated within the last 10 years. Alumni with either graduate or undergraduate degrees are eligible
for this award.
To submit a nomination for next year’s Homecoming, e-mail a completed Nomination Form
to Erin Bertelsen
by May 31, 2017 or mail to NAU Alumni Engagement, PO Box 6034,
Flagstaff, AZ 86011.
