Nominations requested for alumni board and distinguished alumni awards


The National Alumni Association is accepting nominations to elect four new members to its Board of Directors for 2013-2014.

While no single characteristic defines an ideal board member, nominees should be highly enthusiastic about Newman and committed to attending three meetings per year and assisting with association events and activities.

To nominate yourself or another alumnus, email [email protected] to obtain a nomination form. Nominations will be accepted through June 1, 2013.

The Alumni Association is also seeking nominations for the 2014 distinguished alumni awards. Nominees must be graduates of the academy, junior college or college/university at least five years beyond their graduation year. Award recipients will be honored at the Cardinal Newman Banquet on Feb. 23, 2014.

Nominees are requested for:
St. Maria De Mattias Award, honoring alumni who give continuous support and stewardship to Newman and Catholic life.
Beata Netemeyer Alumni Award, honoring alumni who minister with others bringing about the mission of Christ.
Leon A. McNeill Distinguished Alumni Award, honoring alumni who have achieved outstanding success in their personal lives and careers.
Spirit of Acuto Award, honoring alumni who use their talent and training at critical junctures to move a vision to reality.
