Two alumni will receive the Alumni Service Award.

The Young Alumni Achievement Award adopted by the VCSU Alumni Association was established in 2012 to recognize VCSU’s more recent, outstanding alumni as they embark on their chosen paths and strive for greatness. The award is presented to recognize future leaders under the age of 40. This year Nicholas Lee of Valley City will receive the award.
