Call for Award Nominations

The board of alumni invites nominations for awards to alumni volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to the college in 2006, through their volunteer efforts in the offices of alumni relations, career services, admission, and development. Alumni and non-alumni community volunteers are also eligible for the outstanding volunteer award, which honors those who give to Reed through many different forms of volunteer generosity.

Also, the Foster-Scholz Club is seeking nominations of alumni who attended Reed 40 or more years ago (currently the classes of 1966 and earlier), for its distinguished service award.

The award is presented at the Foster-Scholz Club & Annual Recognition luncheon during Reunions. This tradition was begun in 1975 and is designed to recognize a club member (in Portland or not) who has made major contributions to the community and/or the college. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2007. Submit nominations in writing to
