UNT has a long-standing tradition of recognizing the outstanding achievement, service and support of UNT's alumni and friends. And as a special celebration of this year's 50th anniversary of the UNT Alumni Awards, the awards program will move to fall 2015, coinciding with festivities planned for Homecoming and the university's 125th anniversary celebration. The awards ceremony was traditionally hosted in the spring.
Among those honored during the last awards event was Distinguished Young Alumni Award winner Graham Douglas ('05), a top freelance advertising creative director. Douglas said the alumni awards are a "very meaningful" way to be recognized by your alma mater.
"North Texas shaped my world view and prepared me well," he said at the 2014 ceremony.
UNT's Alumni Awards showcase the high caliber of the university's alumni and celebrate the depth and breadth of their professional accomplishments and service to the community.
"The alumni awards are among the highest honors the university bestows," Rob McInturf, executive director of the UNT Alumni Association, says. "We want to ensure the accomplishments of our alumni are highlighted at an event where they can receive recognition from their peers while still allowing us the opportunity to celebrate the impact they are making in their communities and around the world."
