The Niagara Legacy – Alumni of Distinction/ROTC Military Hall of Fame

Alumni2013 ROTC 0029Members of the Niagara University family – alumni, parents, and other friends of the university – are invited to nominate Niagara University alumni for both the Niagara Legacy-Alumni of Distinction and the Niagara University ROTC Military Hall of Fame awards. New this year, the awards will be presented during the Alumni Weekend Dinner Celebration, Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014. This year we are celebrating those with the graduation class year ending in 4’s and 9’s. When making your nomination, please keep in mind those alumni who are celebrating a reunion this year!

The Alumni of Distinction was established in 2007 to celebrate alumni who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments and excellence in their fields of endeavor; lived lives that mirror the Vincentian ideals of the university; and had a positive and lasting impact on society; while the ROTC Hall of Fame honors military science alumni for their professional achievements and their contributions to society in the example of St. Vincent de Paul.

Please take a minute to nominate and support our talented alumni! Nominations for the Niagara Legacy - Alumni of Distinction and the Niagara University ROTC Military Hall of Fame awards are due by Aug. 22, 2014.
