Alumni Awards

Distinguished. Humble. Accomplished. Centered. Pointers.

UW-Stevens Point honors our alumni biannually with the UWSP Alumni Awards. These different awards are Distinguished Alumnus, Trailblazer, Mary Ann Nigbor Volunteer of the Year and Lifetime Achievement awards. We call upon our Pointer family to nominate those who they believe to be deserving of these awards.
