Be like Lincoln

Nominations are now being accepted for the 11th annual Lincoln Award.

The award, established in 1992 by the Office of the President, seeks to honor local residents or former residents who stand out as extraordinary citizens.

Recipients possess qualities such as outstanding citizenship, notable achievement, and distinguished service.

Kathy Stewart, NKU director of special events, said it is important for the University to recognize the accomplishments of community residents.

Many past recipients have been affiliated with the university, but that this is not a requirement for receiving the award, said Chris Cole, interim director of media relations and communications.

Anyone can nominate a community member to be a recipient of the Lincoln Award.

Nominations should consist of a one-page letter, which explains why the nominee should be considered for the Lincoln, according to the criteria of citizenship, achievement and service.

Included with the letter should be a resume and other supporting materials, as well as the nominee’s name, position, address, and telephone number and the nominator’s name, address, and phone number. Nominations should be directed to the Office of the President before January 15, 2002.
