Summit Awards - Volunteers of the Year
The Summit Awards ceremony is held on Thursday evening of Homecoming Week and is designed to honor volunteers of WKU. This dinner program provides WKU with an opportunity to express gratitude to those who unselfishly give their time and resources to the university.
During the event, alumni chapters and alumni volunteers receive awards for their service to WKU. The highlight of the night is the presentation of three Distinguished Service Medals, which recognize the top university volunteers.

Bruce and Diane serve as co-chairs of the HC-PAC Recruitment Committee. Both are highly involved in Honors College events, dedicating their time to the betterment of our college and the opportunities it provides our talented scholars. Their sons, Brice and Brent, are both Honors College at WKU scholars.
