Dunn, Schlotman Receive Annual Greek Alumni Awards

The Greek Affairs Alumni Council (GAAC) honored two outstanding Greek alumni at the annual Greek Excellence Awards on April 10 in Tangeman University Center. The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life hosted nearly 600 Greek students and alumni in this annual celebration of Greek life.

The William R. Nester Jr. Award is presented to a Greek alumnus who has demonstrated a lifetime commitment to promoting University of Cincinnati Fraternity & Sorority Life and has greatly contributed the success of the community. The David M. Lance Award is presented to a young Greek alumnus (under 35) who since graduation has contributed in many ways to assist Fraternity & Sorority Life, or a specific chapter, at UC.

The awards selection committee, composed of GAAC board members, reviewed many applications this winter, ultimately choosing Jan Dunn, CECH ’59, of Chi Omega to receive the William R. Nester Jr. Award, and Whitney Schlotman, A&S ’09, of Theta Phi Alpha to receive the David M. Lance Award.
