Brittain awards seek nominations
Two of Emory’s most prestigious honors are the Thomas Jefferson
Award for faculty/ administrators and the Marion Luther Brittain
Award for students, and the selection committees for each award
are soliciting nominations from the community.
The Jefferson Award recognizes an outstanding faculty member or
administrator for significant service through personal activities,
influence and leadership. It traditionally has been awarded to individuals
who have demonstrated substantial and sustained contributions over
at least a decade at Emory.
Nominations remain current for five years, and a list of candidates
is available from the provost’s office; nominators can reaffirm
or add their support to an existing candidate.
Nominations can be directed to Vice Provost Harriet King, 404 Administration
Building, or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for nominations for the 2003 recipient is March 31.
The Brittain Award is presented each year to a graduating student
from any division of the University who is considered to have performed
the most “significant, meritorious and devoted service”
to Emory. It was made possible by a gift from Marion Luther Brittain,
former president of Georgia Tech and an Emory alumnus.
Nominations can be sent to the Office of Campus Life, 415E Dobbs
Center, and the deadline for 2003 nominations is March 31. For more
information, contact Martin Howell at 404-727-7195.
