The Alumnae and Alumni Award Committee is actively seeking nominees for the Wells College Association of Alumnae and Alumni Award. The Award honors Wells alumnae and alumni of high achievement in professions and careers, in volunteer and community work, in service to their alma mater, or in some combination of these endeavors. Only living alumnae and alumni are eligible and self-nominations are not accepted. Both graduates and non-graduates are considered alumni. Points to be considered in making a nomination are as follows: quality of performance in his or her field of creativity, continuity of effort, leadership skills, willingness to accept responsibility, recognition by his or her community, and loyalty to Wells. Please bear in mind that the research process is lengthy and not all candidates who are reviewed will receive the award. Hence, your nomination must remain confidential. The WCA Award is a significant honor. Its meaning lies in selecting those who have been uniquely empowered by their undergraduate experience – those who see their Wells education as providing a special foundation or sense of direction and whose subsequent contributions reflect distinction on them as well as the College.
