Annual Award Candidates

It is with great pleasure that Western Michigan University's Make a Difference selection committee announces the candidates for the 2017 annual awards. These individuals were selected to receive 2016-17 semiannual awards and are now eligible to win one of four annual awards, each with a before-tax prize of $1,200. The selection committee is giving the campus community an opportunity to provide additional information about these candidates before the selection is made.
