Mortar Board inviting nominations for student awards
The Barbara Cook Chapter of Mortar Board is asking faculty and staff for nominations for two student awards -- the Dean Betty Nelson Service Award and the Tip of the Cap Award. Nominations should be submitted by 5 p.m. March 14.
The Dean Betty Nelson Service Award recognizes one Purdue student affiliated with a student organization and one student organization that excel in community service in the Lafayette-West Lafayette area. Mortar Board seeks to recognize those who have been instrumental in the continuing success or initiation of service programs. The award consists of $500 for the student winner and $500 to the student organization.
Nominations may be made at https://boilerlink.purdue.edu/organization/MortarBoard/availableforms. Log in using your career account and password, and then select the 2014 Dean Betty Nelson Service Award form.
The Tip of the Cap Award is presented to students who do not hold a major leadership role in their student organization but who are "unsung heroes" and rarely receive the recognition deserved. There are up to 10 recipients each year. All receive a monetary gift and certificate.
