Endowed by the Great Class of 1939, the Class of ’39 Award for Excellence is presented annually to one distinguished member of the faculty whose outstanding contributions for a five-year period have been judged by her/his peers to represent the highest achievement of service to the student body, university and community, state or nation. The award recipient becomes an honorary member of the class and earns a monetary award equal to the value of $5,000 in 1989 dollars. Recipients are recognized at one of the December graduation ceremonies and in a January ceremony at the ’39 Bell Tower in the Carillon Gardens.
