Class of '39 Award for Excellence Ceremony

Join academic administrators and faculty as we celebrate the 2019 recipient of the Class of '39 Award for Excellence. This award, endowed by the Great Class of 1939 is presented annually to one distinguished member of the faculty whose outstanding contributions for a five-year period have been judged by her/his peers to represent the highest achievement of service to the student body, university and community, state or nation. The recipient also becomes an honorary member of the class and provided a monetary award equal to the value of $5,000 in 1989 dollars - approximately $10,000 today.

Recipients are recognized at one of the December graduation ceremonies and in a February ceremony at the ’39 Bell Tower in the Carillon Gardens.
