Young Alumni Award
In 2011, the Young Alumni Award was established, honoring two alumni — one male and one female — to be presented at the annual fall Homecoming Celebration. Recipients are chosen by vote of the Alumni Board, and must have graduated from Olivet within the last 10 years. This award is made possible through a generous gift from Mel '73 and Judi (Tucker) '71 Sayes.
2014 Young Alumni Award Winners: Katie Kalemkarian ('06) and Scott Karalis ('08). To watch the award presentation, click here.
