Call for Nominations: Tell Us About Alumni You Think Should Receive an Award

for outstanding Seattle Pacific University alumni. The Alumni Office is asking Response readers to nominate individuals for both the annual Alumnus/a of the Year Award and regional Medallion Awards.

"Every year we seek to honor great SPU alumni,” says Alumni Director Doug Taylor. “And the nominating committee wants to receive your recommendations. Tell us about those men and women you know who are living out the SPU vision.”

To nominate someone, send e-mail to, or visit alumni and click on “Alumni Nomination.” Include a brief summary of your nominee’s work and servi ce, contact information and the names of others who can speak to his or her qualifications.

In general, honorees live a balanced life of professional accomplishment, community service and Christian maturity. They are intended to represent the thousands of Seattle Pacific alumni who live lives of competence and character.
