Alumni Award Winners To Be Honored

During Homecoming weekend, North Carolina Wesleyan will recognize an elite group of alumni on Friday evening, September 29 at the Dunn Center for the Performing Arts.  This group of distinguished alumni were nominated by fellow alumni, faculty and staff based on their personal accomplishments, achievements in business, continued financial support of the College, as well as their outstanding loyalty and service to their alma mater.  The winners will be recognized prior to the Dunn Center show, The Unexpected Boys and afterwards at a dessert reception.

The Alumni Achievement Award is presented to a recent graduate of not more than ten years of alumni status who has already made a significant achievement in society.  The 2017 co-recipients are Josh Cain ’08 and Quinderra Spellman ’09.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is presented to alumni with more than ten years of alumni status who meet one or more of the following criteria:  outstanding service to the College over a period of years; personal accomplishments that enhance the prestige of the College; and/or distinguished service or accomplishment in their field.  2017 co-recipients for the Distinguished Alumni Award are Tom ’70 and Julia ’71 Fredericks and Dr. Jeffrey Shelton ’69.

The Wesleyan Family Award honors one family that has demonstrated special loyalty to the College over more than one generation.  Examples of such loyalty might include:  mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, or other family members attending Wesleyan; families who have been excellent financial supporters of the College over more than one generation; or a combination of the above.  The 2017 Wesleyan Family Award recipients are Jim and Sheila Martin, Jim Pittman ’92 and his wife, Janie Mac Pittman and Jan Pittman Robillard ’04 and her husband, Andrew Robillard.
