[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Dateline: March 21, 2017, Athens, AL – The Athens State University Foundation, in conjunction with the University Alumni Association, will host a Scholarship Reception and Alumni Awards ceremony on April 8, 2017, in Carter Gymnasium.  Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6:00 PM, and the program will begin at 6:30 PM.

New scholarships and endowments will be announced at the event, and remarks will be made by Ms. Judy Houghteling, donor of the Glasgow Presidential Scholarship.  Categories for Alumni Awards include Distinguished Alumni, Alumni Loyalty, Outstanding Recent Graduate, Deweese and Jim Beasley Appreciation, Dr. Angeline Nazaretian Distinguished Service, and Outstanding Alumni in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Education.

“Previously held as separate events, the decision to combine the two was based on an opportunity to recognize our supporters, honor successful Athens State alumni, and serve as a mentoring opportunity for scholarship recipients,” stated Dr. Keith Ferguson, Vice President for University Advancement.  “This format will allow scholarship recipients to witness firsthand the success stories of Athens State alumni, which are inspiring and serve as a testament to the quality of an education from Athens State University.”

All are cordially invited to attend as the past, present, and future students of Athens State University are honored.  Admission to the event is complimentary; however, RSVPs are required.  Please make your reservation by March 31, 2017, at (256) 233-8185 or advancement@athens.edu.  More information can be found online at www.athens.edu/alumni/awards.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
