Briefly: Alumni association debuts new award

The Association of Yale Alumni will present the new “AYA Leadership Award” Friday morning to five alumni “ambassadors” for volunteer service on the University’s behalf. The award is in line with the AYA’s recently developed strategic plan, said AYA Director Mark Dollhopf. “It’s my personal feeling that we don’t honor our volunteers enough,” he said. “This is the first step to trying to put together an aspiring stewardship program for our volunteer service.” The AYA will bestow the University’s highest alumni honor, the Yale Medal, to five pre-announced recipients Friday evening.
