UAF seeks nominations for alumni awards

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Alumni Association is accepting nominations for its annual alumni awards, including the Distinguished Alumnus Award. The association honors its alumni each year for their service to the community, the university and the alumni association, for business and professional excellence, and for contributions to the resource, agriculture or mining fields.

Nominations will be accepted through the end of June. Recipients will be honored this fall during the UAF Nanook Rendezvous Reunion banquet, set for Sept. 23.
