  • Distinguished Alumni | University of Wisconsin-River Falls
    in enrollment and programs after World War II these institutions began to change The usual direction was to make a distinguished alumnus alumna award rather than an honorary doctorate The new awareness came to UW River Falls with the same tide of affairs that brought the establishment of alumni chapters the Foundation and the awarding of liberal arts agriculture and education degrees The faculty committee which was wrestling with the problem of establishing local alumni chapters first expressed concern on this point The minutes of that committee for April 14 1959 thus recorded Recognition of an outstanding alumnus should be considered by this group Perhaps have the chapters nominate candidates for recognition Could it be done this year Wayne Wolfe to present the idea to President Kleinpell One week later the Alumni Committee recorded the next step President Kleinpell asked Wolfe to have the committee set up criteria and make recommendations for the award this year Also we need not limit ourselves to the class of 1909 or the 50th anniversary class The committee then proceeded to establish criteria for selecting the first distinguished alumnus alumna listing these requirements Personal accomplishments in their field Civic responsibility and contribution to the community Continuing interest in the college A month later the committee added a fourth criterion Highest integrity in professional public and personal relations and placed four names in nomination The committee wrote to a number of alumni and other friends seeking information on the accomplishments of these graduates and then nominated Dean Smith as the first to receive the Distinguished Alumnus Award at the June Commencement 1959 In the ensuing years the committee invited nominations from the alumni and annually selected one person to be honored at commencement This tradition was interrupted in 1967 for the first time when the award was made not only to LeRoy Luberg 1930 but also to Melvin Wall 1936 who had recently lost his life on an educational mission in South Vietnam Since 1969 two alumni have been selected each year except in 1973 1982 and 1983 when three were chosen and in 1977 when four were honored Since 1986 the committee has selected one alumnus alumna each year for the award reinstating the tradition established in the award s inception The committee has always had a dozen or more nominations for consideration It has conscientiously evaluated the achievements of each one and though all of them deserved the Distinguished Alumnus Award has made its selection after much discussion and by the secret ballot Their frustrations came from the problem of choosing a candidate who may have achieved great distinction elsewhere but has never shown continuing interest in the college deciding between a graduate at the peak of his her career and one who has retired or between one who contributed much to the college over many years but has only a modest business or professional reputation Despite these problems the list of distinguished alumni represent the best who have walked through these halls
