University Marketing + Communications
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Northern Kentucky University alumni are blazing new trails in healthcare, shaping labor policy, constructing the cities of the future, and educating the communicators of tomorrow.
Next month, four outstanding alumni will be honored for their contributions to the community and the University at NKU’s annual Alumni Awards Celebration. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5 at the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union Ballroom. The event will serve as the kickoff for Homecoming Weekend.
“Garren Colvin, John Wagner, David Spaulding, and Michele Day put students first. They lead with excellence. And each of them has left a lasting impact upon the University and our region,” said Alumni Board of Directors President Frank Birkenhauer (’92, ’95). “We are proud to call them Norse, and we invite our alumni community to join us in honoring their achievements and contributions.”
WLWT News 5 anchor Sheree L. Paolello (’96) will return as Master of Ceremonies for the Alumni Awards Celebration. Paolello received a bachelor’s degree in radio and television from NKU in 1996, and in 2014 she received the Distinguished Service Award.
The event is Friday, Feb. 5 and will serve as the kickoff for Homecoming Weekend activities. To RSVP and purchase tickets, please visit alumni.nku.edu.
