These deserving recipients, from myriad backgrounds and disciplines, are outstanding representatives of the diversity of the talent and scholarship within the College of Arts and Sciences and our vast alumni community. All five recipients spoke eloquently of their time as UAB students and the impact that their professors and peers made on their lives and careers. A few of them were able to meet with faculty and students while they were in town.
