Nominate yourself or another qualifying Wharton MBA who has made a real difference volunteering their time and energy for the benefit of others. DEADLINE: Feb 15
Recognition will be bestowed during the 2018 WGES Reunion Luncheon in May
The Wharton Graduate Emeritus Society (WGES) is a distinguished and active group of Wharton MBA alumni that includes all who have celebrated their 45th class reunion (i.e. all graduate classes prior to 1973.)
One of the members, Bob Crandall, WG’60, a former Chairman of American Airlines, has challenged WGES members to utilize their Wharton-acquired knowledge and experience by volunteering their time and energy for efforts that improve the quality of life and well being of others. The 2018 Crandall Challenge Citation is an opportunity to recognize those who have done so in a meaningful way.
Whether one's efforts or projects involve a single community, a state, nationally or internationally, each submission will be equally considered and judged objectively on the basis of their creativity, operation, appeal and impact.
Nominate one of your Wharton Graduate classmates, or yourself, for this recognition that will be given at the May 2018 WGES Reunion Luncheon.
Submissions should describe the volunteer activities and endeavors of the nominee focusing on:
- goals, performance and achievement of civic engagement
- continuity and extent of the volunteer’s involvement
- significance of their socio-economic impacts
- their innovative and creative nature
All nominees will also receive a certificate to properly recognize them and to signify the entire Wharton family's appreciation for the amazing work they've done on behalf of the community.
Nomination Deadline: February 15, 2018
