|Reception will recognize award-winning alums|
Arts and Sciences Dean Martha Potvin invites you to a reception recognizing David Williamson, '70 and Jennifer Thorson, '93, both English department graduates, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, in 110 Merrifield Hall.
Williamson will receive the UND Alumni Association's top award, The Sioux Award, as one of their outstanding alumni for 2008 and Thorson will receive the 2008 Young Alumni Achievement Award.
The Sioux Award is the highest honor given by the UND Alumni Association. A limited number of Sioux Awards are presented to UND alumni and friends who have distiguished themselves through professional or career achievements, participation in community service, involvement in business and professional associations, and interest in and loyalty to UND.
The Young Alumni Achievement Award was established in 2002 to recognize UND's more recent graduates who have achieved great success in a short time since they have left their alma mater. Recipients have demonstrated high levels of achievement, leadership and support for the University of North Dakota.
