College to Present Educate for Service Awards

The annual President’s Dinner of Elizabethtown College recognizes and celebrates the efforts and gifts of alumni, parents and friends of the College. Dr. Carl J. Strikwerda will host the dinner October 26 at the Brossman Ballroom at Freeman Cultural Center at the Masonic Village in Elizabethtown, Pa. Attendees include members of the Board of Trustees, Leadership Council members, alumni, senior staff and friends of the College.

Notably, Strikwerda will present the 2012 Educate for Service Awards, which recognize alumni who have made considerable contributions their profession, the College and the community. The highest honor College alumni can receive, the Educate for Service Awards have been a tradition since 1966.

Each year, alumni are nominated for awards in a maximum of three separate distinctions: Service through Professional Achievement, Service to the College and Service to Humanity. Recipients of the Service through Professional Achievement award have continued their intellectual growth through research or further education or have achieved notable success in their career or have been published in professional journals or books. For a graduate to be honored with the Service to the College award, significant contributions to the school aimed at furthering its programs or curriculum, or longstanding demonstrated commitment to advancing the legacy of Elizabethtown, must be evident. To receive the Service to Humanity award, a graduate must demonstrate dedication to improving social welfare, engage in pro bono efforts that further their cause or participate in stewardship of the earth’s resources.

The recipients of the 2012 Educate for Service Awards are Lt. Elyse M. Braxton ’87 for Service through Professional Achievement and Alyce Grunberg Spector ’77 for Service to Humanity. Awards will be presented at the President’s Dinner on October 26.
