Nominations will be accepted through Friday, May 1 for the
ASU Alumni Association's annual Distinguished Alumni awards. Now in its

Recipients are selected from nominations submitted by alumni, friends of
the university, and the general public.
Distinguished Alumni presentation ceremony will be held at halftime of
the Homecoming football game on Saturday, Oct. 24. (The
Homecoming date has been changed to Oct. 24 as the 2009 football
schedule has been modified.) A printable Distinguished Alumni
