On November 17, 2021, the Office of Alumni Relations and the Division of Institutional Advancement hosted the virtual Fourth Annual Alma Matters Awards. More than 20 alumni were nominated for the four awards, each of whom is making outstanding contributions to this community and students we serve. As part of the voting process, 43 votes were cast to determine the four awardees. We are grateful to everyone who participated in this event and the voting process. We also extend our thanks to our sponsor, Almeda Insurance Agency, Inc., the event committee, and the faculty and administrators who contributed as speakers.
