Alumni and Development News
Each year, the alumni association honors outstanding alumni with awards for high professional or personal achievement and for valued service to Skidmore. You can help the awards committee by sending nominations and letters of support, by October 8, to Vincent Catalano ’83, Awards Committee Chair, c/o Alumni Office, Skidmore College; fax 518-580-5668; or firstname.lastname@example.org. Your remarks should describe the candidate’s strengths, honors, accomplishments, and/or involvement with Skidmore; if possible, also include copies of résumés or publications, as well as names and addresses of others who can offer information about the nominee. The awards are:
Distinguished Achievement Award, honoring an alumna/us who graduated at least ten years ago and who has translated her or his Skidmore experience into distinguished achievement through professional work and/or community service. The recipient must return to campus to accept the award during Reunion 2002.

Each recipient must have served Skidmore for at least ten years as alumna/us, trustee, faculty member, administrator, staff, parent, or friend.
