Each year the Alumni Association honors individuals during Founders Day celebrations. Recipients of the Distinguished Alumni, Outstanding Young Alumni, Alumni Achievement, E. Burton Mercier Alumni Service and Senator John W. Maitland Jr. Commitment to Education awards are recognized.

Individuals chosen for each honor are selected through a nomination process. The deadline to nominate someone as a 2014 recipient is approaching, with all submissions required by the end of May.
