Twenty-one St. Thomas seniors are nominated for the 2011 Tommie Award.
“The nominees for the Tommie Award 2011 are an outstanding representation of the high-caliber students that attend St. Thomas,” said Vern Klobassa, director of student engagement. “The nominees show a strong and diverse commitment to ideals of scholarship, leadership and campus involvement.”
The Tommie Award, formerly known as the “Mr. Tommy Award,” started in 1931. The honor recognizes seniors based on their leadership, service and scholarship at the university. Students were nominated by fellow students, faculty and staff.
Preliminary voting for the Tommie Award will be available online from Dec. 6 to Dec. 9.
Voting is open to all St. Thomas students, faculty and staff. Ballots can only be accessed online with a St. Thomas log-in. All voters will receive an e-mail with voting instructions, Klobassa said.
Three finalists will be announced in December, and the final vote will take place in February.
