This award is presented to a graduate who has demonstrated success early in his/her career and who has been active in the life of the University. In 2016, he was inducted into the UNI's Elinor A. Crawford & William R. Thrall Hall of Excellence.

Currently, he serves as Executive Director of Operations for Programs and Business for the School of Extended and International Education at Sonoma State University and adjunct faculty at Santa Rosa Junior College. Prior to his position at SSU, he served as Director of Community Education, Lifelong Learning and International Education at the College of Marin in Kentfield, California.
