AOY nominations now closed

A big "thank you" to everyone who nominated an alumnus for the Alumni Association Board of Directors' new “Alumnus of the Year” award -- Distinguished Service "In Every Person's World" -- which will be handed out for the first time at 2014's second Homecoming weekend, Nov. 14-15.

The members of the Alumni Board's AOY committee have reviewed the nominations and will present their recommendations to the full board. Board members will vote and the winner will be notified. 

This is the only AOY award that will be handed out this fall. At next year's Homecoming (Fall 2015), all four AOY awards will be presented.

The committee considered a number of outstanding nominees who demonstrate "excellence in carrying out ORU's founding vision through service and achievements in non-ministry/non-missions fields, and by representing Christ in their particular corner of 'every person's world.'"
