Elizabeth D. Couey Award
The Couey Award was established in 1974 in memory of Stony Brook's first Coordinator of Student Activities. Ms. Couey's concerns for students and student life greatly contributed to the growth of University student services and to the establishment of the Stony Brook Union.
The award is presented each year to seniors who plan to graduate during that calendar year. The nominees must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 at the time of nomination. The nominees must have made outstanding contributions towards the improvements and growth of student affairs and student programs at Stony Brook. The nominees must also exemplify Elizabeth Couey's unique qualities, which include the ability to listen with understanding, guide without boundaries, give and take with love and grow with each passing day.
Attached is the call for nominations which are due to Alexandra Marchesano by Friday, April 1, 2011 by email only. Contact Alexandra Marchesano, Director of Student Activities at email@example.com for further information regarding this award.
