Dr. Christopher Faiver ’69 Alumni Volunteer Award

Douglas Grimm ‘84 Alumni Achievement Award

Patricia (Hutchins) Murphy ’74 Lifelong Leadership Award

We will also have a special speaker this year, President Elect Dr. Lori Varlotta will attend this year’s award reception to greet alumni and friends and address the group.

Run for Grace and Andy

Since this would have been their 5 year Hiram reunion, we are hosting the Annual Run for Grace and Andy during Alumni Weekend. This run celebrates the lives of Grace Chamberlain and Andy Hopkins and their love for Hiram College. Grace and Andy were first-year Hiram students who lost their lives in a 2006 accident when a drunk driver struck their car. Join the greater Hiram family in support of the Grace Chamberlain and Andy Hopkins scholarship fund. To learn more click HERE.

Alumni Volunteer Day Save-the-date and Call for Coordinators
AVD 2014Hiram College is known for developing community conscious, world-class citizens who possess a passion for helping others. Here is your chance to show your community what great alumni we have by hosting an Alumni Volunteer Day site in your town! We had a record breaking number of sites last year with 30 all across the country. Please help us break that record again this year.

Remember, Alumni Volunteer Day is NOT just for Hiram Alumni, but rather is about Hiram Alumni taking the lead in service to their respective communities. All are welcome to participate in your volunteer projects! Hosting a site is easy. Click this LINK for a list of FAQs that describe the event and how to participate.

If you're not interested in coordinating a site but would still like to participate, then please SAVE THE DATE for Saturday, September 13th. If there is not a specific Hiram volunteer site in your town, then we welcome you to commit to helping another service project or charity that day. We'll still send you a t-shirt even if you are the only person from Hiram who participates!
