Earlier this year, the Class of ’69 Honorees Committee (consisting or Dick Glovsky, Greg Lau, Paul Tuhus and Jim Staros ex officio) invited and received a number of recommendations from various members of our Class for the Committee to consider recognizing with the Class of 1969 Outstanding Service Award. In that regard, Rick Willets and David Prentice (posthumously) were recognized at our 75th birthday celebration in June.

The Committee now is seeking additional nominations and invites members of the Class to submit those recommendations on or before September 23, after which the Committee plans to recommend one or more additional nominees to receive their awards at our Homecoming gathering during the last weekend in October. In that regard, the Committee will be considering nominations it already has received as well as any other nominations members of the Class would like to present. The Committee is inviting members of the Class to submit new nominations by forwarding them to Dick Glovsky at richard.glovsky@lockelord.com on or before Friday, September 23. Nominations received after that date will be considered for future awards. Classmates may be recommended by any number of classmates.

As a reminder, one to three such awards are to be given annually to classmates who have manifested dedication and exemplary contributions (excluding financial) to the Class or College. An award may be posthumous, and the Class Executive Committee approves all awardees. The names of the awardees are to be engraved on a plaque to be displayed in the DOC House during all Class events there. An engraved memento of the Award is to be given to each awardee. Awardee(s) also will be featured with a story on the front page of Class Newsletter and recognition in the next Alumni Magazine Class of ’69 column.

Nominations should consist of no less than 50 and no more than 200 words explaining why the nominee is worthy of the award.

Please address any questions about the award to Dick at the email address above.
