East Carolina Alumni Association receives CASE award of excellence

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III awarded the East Carolina Alumni Association with its prestigious award of excellence for overall alumni relations program during its recent conference.

The Alumni Association received the grand award in this category in 2008 and 2009, and the Award of Excellence in 2011.

“This just lets the world know what we already know, East Carolina and her Alumni Association are true to our mission of service. We do what we do because our alumni deserve the best, awards just validate that others are watching and approve,” said Paul J. Clifford, president and CEO of the East Carolina Alumni Association.

Other finalists in the category were the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Western Kentucky, and Miami University. The grand award went to Western Kentucky. UNC-CH also received the award of excellence, and Miami received special merit recognition.
