The KU Alumni Association offered three outstanding Student Alumni Leadership Board members with Judy L. Ruedlinger Awards of $500 each for spring 2017.
The recipients are Maren Hansen, a junior from McPherson, Kansas; Sarah Heitmeyer, a sophomore from Littleton, Massachusetts; and Emily Carmack, a junior from Lone Jack, Missouri.
The Judy L. Ruedlinger Award honors the first Student Alumni Leadership Board adviser, who was known by her students as “Judy Rudy.”
The award was established to maintain commitment and involvement of past, present and future members of the Student Alumni Leadership Board at KU. The award is granted to those who convey pride in membership, public awareness of the Student Alumni Leadership Board and a sense of permanence, strength and integrity in the organization. Ideally, it also is meant to encourage Student Alumni Leadership Board members to join the KU Alumni Association after graduation and continue contact with the university.
The Judy L. Ruedlinger Award Fund is managed by KU Endowment, the independent, nonprofit organization serving as the official fundraising and fund-management foundation for KU.
