BGSU Centennial Alumni Awards 100 of the Most Prominent Alumni
“From Boston to Buenos Aires and from Maine to Moscow, BGSU graduates are making significant contributions to their professions and are shaping the world for the next generation,” President Carol Cartwright announced to a record crowd in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union. Nearly 900 people gathered April 24 to celebrate 100 years and 100 people of BGSU. The Centennial Alumni Awards event celebrated the accomplishments of 100 very special people who “represent the more than 160,000 BGSU alumni living around the world,” Cartwright said. “The accomplishments of our honorees are certainly transformational. You represent the very best of Bowling Green State University, and everyone associated with BGSU congratulates you for your accomplishments. You set the standard for all of our current students and all who will attend BGSU in the future,” Cartwright said.
