The UTEP Alumni Association and the Office of Alumni Relations are now accepting nominations for the prestigious Distinguished Alumni and Gold Nugget awards.
These awards are presented to UTEP alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions and lives by giving back to their communities and alma mater, and who serve as an inspiration to future generations of Miners.
As part of this longstanding tradition, the selected honorees will be invited to this year’s Homecoming festivities and will be asked to participate in a number of activities, including: celebratory receptions, the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner, the Homecoming Tailgate and game, as well as other events on campus.
Those who submit a nomination should consider a deserving Miner who exemplifies the UTEP spirit; who has become successful in his or her field; and is doing great things, both professionally and personally.
The Gold Nugget Award is given to an individual by each college. The Distinguished Alumni award winner represents the entire University.
For additional information about the nomination process, please call 915-747-6361. To download the nomination forms, visit the UTEP Alumni website.
The nomination deadline is Friday, Feb. 23, 2018.
