Do you know a fellow graduate who went above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic? He/she might be a nurse on the frontlines caring for COVID-19 patients, a person who helped bring groceries to an elderly neighbor, or a teacher who helped students adjust to virtual learning.  

MSOE’s Office of Alumni Affairs is seeking nominations to recognize and honor grads who have been essential frontline workers during the COVID-19 global pandemic. Nominees must be a volunteer or employed in the areas of health care, education, law enforcement, food and agriculture, facilities, public transit, manufacturing, U.S. postal service, or correctional workers.  

Eligibility requirements: 

  • Must be an MSOE alumnus/a
  • Must have worked in an essential industry full- or part-time between March 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021.
  • Must have been required by his/her job to work outside the home at least some of the time between March 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021.

Nominations can be submitted online using the Alumni Awards Nomination Form.  

The deadline to submit is May 1, 2021.  Awards will be presented later this year at a special on-campus ceremony.
