Dear OSU friends and colleagues,

Do you have in mind a fellow Beaver who deserves some recognition?

You have until February 10th to submit nominations for Oregon Staters who have excelled in their field of study, been dedicated to serving Oregon State University or have served their community in an exemplary way. We will soon start reviewing nominations for the E.B. Lemon Distinguished Alumni Award, the Jean and “Scram” Graham Leadership Award and the Honorary Alumni Award.

Past nominations have yielded such recipients as Al Reser (E.B. Lemon ), Eric Schoenstein (Jean and “Scram” Graham) and Mike Parker (Honorary Alumni). Don’t miss this final opportunity to include another great Oregon Stater alongside these remarkable people.

The spring awards celebration is on April 27th, so to find out more about these awards and past recipients please click here.

Thanks so much.
