NEW ALBANY, IN, (Oct. 22, 2010) – The Indiana University Southeast 2010 Chancellor’s Medallion Dinner is sold out.
IU Southeast Chancellor Sandra R. Patterson-Randles, IU President Michael A. McRobbie, J.T. Forbes, executive director of the IU Alumni Association, and Paula Jenkins, vice president of development for regional campuses for the IU Foundation, will join nearly 600 attendees at Horseshoe Southern Indiana on Oct. 30 to recognize Jack Koetter and Jim Morris, this year’s recipients of the Chancellor’s Medallion.
The Chancellor’s Medallion is the highest honor presented by the Chancellor of Indiana University Southeast. It is given to individuals who have rendered distinguished service to the university and to the community, have given their talents in the promotion of human welfare and community well-being, and who – through their integrity, sensitivity, and commitment – serve as models for students and alumni of IU Southeast.
Proceeds from the Chancellor’s Medallion Dinner go to the Chancellor’s Medallion Leadership Scholarship program. The scholarships recognize students for participation and leadership in academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, and community volunteerism.
In addition to honoring the recipients of the Chancellor’s Medallion, guests will be able to participate in a silent and a live auction to raise additional funds for student scholarships. This year’s auction is the largest ever with more than 100 items which were generously donated by members of our community.
The dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010 at Horseshoe Casino. A waiting list is available for those interested. To have your name placed on the waiting list, contact the IU Southeast Office of Development at (812) 941-2464.
