2013 Top Dog Alumni Awards Nominations Requested

The Fresno State Alumni Association (FSAA) invites nominations from alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends for its 2013 Top Dog Alumni Awards. Alumni and friends that have distinguished themselves in their careers and service are honored each fall during Homecoming Week at the Top Dog Alumni Awards Gala held in the Save Mart Center.

Three awards are presented:

• The Distinguished Alumni Award, the highest honor given to an alumnus or alumna of the university, which is based on scholarship, leadership and service to the university, the region and the state. Last year’s recipient, Marvin Meyers, a farming pioneer in private water banking and founder of the Meyers Water Bank and Wildlife Project, was given the highest honor. He joined other past awardees, Robert H. Oliver, a Fresno County Superior Court Judge, Trent Dilfer, an NFL analyst and Super Bowl XXXV winner; Larry Dickenson, Boeing Company’s Commercial Airplanes Group senior vice president for sales; Herb Depp, vice president of Boeing Programs for General Electric’s Aircraft Engines; and Joy Covey, former chief strategy officer for Amazon.com.

• Outstanding Alumni Awards, which recognize a Fresno State alumnus or alumna from each of the university’s eight schools and colleges of academic discipline, and the Division of Student Affairs, Department of Athletics, Division of Graduate Studies, and the Henry Madden Library. Honorees are recognized for outstanding career accomplishment and as examples for current students of exceptional achievement. Past recipients include the late Air Force Col. Rick Husband, commander of the space shuttle Columbia; James Kardach, inventor of the Bluetooth; and former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Paul O’Neill; a Clio, Emmy, and Oscar-award winner Brad Lewis.

• The Arthur Safstrom Service Award, presented to an alumnus, alumna or friend of Fresno State who has given outstanding service to the FSAA or the university. Last year’s recipient was Maria Gutierrez, who joined past awardees including Hal Kissler and Maureen Lewis, Muriel and Earl Smittcamp, Robert Duncan, plus Pat and Vinci Ricchiuti.
