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 University of Texas at El Paso 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 for future generations of Miners.
As part of this long-standing 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 Parade and the Homecoming Game.
Nominees should exemplify the UTEP spirit; be successful in their field; and be doing great things, both professionally and personally.
The nomination deadline is Friday, Feb. 24, 2017.
