    So that makes them unworthy? Supporting your community university and the 17,000 students that attend is admirable. Most of this money supports scholarships which ensures post-secondary education is accessible and affordable.

    How do you know these people were nominated by MUN alumni staff? Are you an alumnus?

    Go view the winners of the past several years; statistically, nearly 75% of the winners were those who donated substantial amounts or were nominated by MUN Alumni Staff.

    Greg, thank you for your comment. As Im sure you understand, due to privacy laws, I cannot release information about our donors. However, I can say that the statement that nearly 75% of the winners were those who donated substantial amounts or were nominated by MUN Alumni Staff is completely inaccurate. I can also say that the nomination process is open for anyone to submit a name and the winners are chosen by an alumni committee which, by design, does not include any staff of the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development. Neither Memorial University, nor the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development in any way votes on, or influences the choice of, winners. As an endnote, I encourage you and others to submit a nomination!
