Nominations for Sullivan Award Now Open

Published: Feb 13, 2014

 LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 13, 2014) — Nominations for the 2014 Algernon Sydney Sullivan Awards, the University of Kentucky's prestigious honor for inspirational humanitarian achievements by students and community members, are now open.

 

The Sullivan Awards, sponsored by the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation, are presented annually to an outstanding male and outstanding female graduating senior, and to a nonstudent with a UK affiliation. The award recognizes individuals whose commitment to community service evokes a spirit of love for and helpfulness to other men and women.

 

The criteria for selection, which puts a premium on character, integrity and humanitarian service, are written in the spirit of Algernon Sydney Sullivan, a Southerner who became a prominent lawyer, businessman and philanthropist in New York in the late 19th century.

 

Award winners will be formally announced Monday, April 14, at the University Honors and Recognition Awards Program in the Student Center's Grand Ballroom.

 

"The Sullivan Awards are a highlight of my academic year," said Buck Ryan, director of the Citizen Kentucky Project of the Scripps Howard First Amendment Center at the UK College of Communication and Information. "We have so many amazing students who are out to change the world and so many friends dedicated to making our community a better place. Selecting winners is a difficult task for our faculty committee."

 

UK has been recognizing Sullivan Award winners since 1927 and is one of several Southern universities that present Sullivan Awards.

 

Nominations for the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award can be emailed to Buck Ryan, chairman of the faculty selection committee, at buck.ryan@uky.edu or by sending a letter of nomination to Ryan at 134 Grehan Building, School of Journalism and Telecommunications, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40506-0042.

 

Deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. Friday, March 21, 2014.
