Everyone is invited to attend the Student Awards Celebration at the University of Minnesota Crookston (UMN Crookston) on Thursday, April 25, 2019. 

The evening begins with refreshments from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Kiehle Rotunda followed by the program in Kiehle Auditorium at 5:30 p.m., and highlighted by remarks from University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler.  As you may already know, President Kaler will be stepping down from his role in July 2019 and this evening is an opportunity for us to both thank President Kaler and recognize the accomplishments of his seven years as the University's leader. 

The awards program is focused on student achievement in academics, athletics, and service. Concluding the evening is the announcement of Man and Woman of the Year, the top academic, service, and leadership award at UMN Crookston.
