Alumni Board Holds Spring Meeting
The highlight of each spring meeting
of the PLU Alumni Board is to confirm the work of the Awards and
Recognition committee. Their work is reflected on the previous
page. The Board also approved a recommendation to create a new
award to honor the extraordinary commitment and accomplishments
of past alumni board president, Brian Olson, who died this past
fall from complications following surgery for colon cancer. The
Brian C. Olson Award is presented to a student who has demonstrated
commitment to the university and the alumni association. By recognizing
the importance of connecting students and alumni, this student
has shown a potential for life-long service to the university.
The Nominations Committee submitted
their recommendations to the Board for filling vacant positions
on the Board (please confirm these nominations by voting on the
ballot found on this page, or by going to the Alumni and Parent
Relations Website which you will find at www.plu.edu/~alumni/.
In related business, the Alumni Board by-laws were changed so
that in the future, one of three Alumni Board representatives
to the Board of Regents will be the current board president.
Darren Hamby ’84, ’92 was recognized
for his service as Alumni Board President these past two years.
Rebecca (Nauss) Burad ’74 will assume the role of President and
Bev (Tranum) Knutzen ‘55 will become the Vice President at the
fall meeting of the Board.
All other committees reported on
their work and established goals for the 2001-2002
