2021 Alumni Achievement Awards Ceremony

There’s no need to make travel arrangements. While the Alumni Achievement Awards ceremony usually takes place on the Knox campus, this year’s event has moved online because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Anyone with an Internet connection and a computer or smartphone will be able to watch.
