Sandra M. Estanek, Ph.D. Young Alumni Award

In 2000, ASACCU established the Young Alumni Award.  Each year we invite the institution that is sponsoring that year's annual conference to name one recently graduated alumnus or alumna to receive the Sandra M. Estanek, Ph.D. Young Alumni Award*. This person exemplifies the qualities of leadership and service that the conference host institution seeks to instill in its graduates.  The recipient is honored at the opening banquet of the ASACCU conference.

ASACCU Young Alumni Award - In their own words

*In 2009, the award was retroactively named the Sandra M. Estanek, Ph.D. Young Alumni Award to honor the founder of ISACC/ASACCU for her 15 years of service to the organization.  Dr. Estanek retired from the board leadership in 2009.
