Purdue University Northwest is seeking nominations of alumni to be honored in its PNW Alumni Hall of Fame.
The PNW Alumni Hall of Fame honors graduates from any time in the 76-year history of the university’s Hammond and Westville campuses. PNW seeks nominations of alumni who are high-achieving leaders in their fields, involved members of their community, and those who have engaged with PNW well beyond their time as students.
The first inductee, David A. Roberts, a 1974 graduate, was recognized in 2022. Roberts is the retired chairman, president and CEO of Carlisle Companies Inc. in Charlotte, N.C., and a longtime supporter of STEM education as well as developments that benefit the greater Northwest Indiana community.
“As we continue to honor our exceptional PNW alumni who represent leadership and transformational change, we hope to create an environment to honor future hall of famers,” said Katie Holderby, director of alumni engagement. “PNW alumni make a difference in their respective communities with their work, volunteerism and PNW pride.”
Nominations are due Jan. 6 and can be completed online. Honorees will be selected in April and recognized in May.
Alumni who graduated at least 10 years ago will be considered. Posthumous nominations will be accepted.
