About the Bulldog Forever Volunteer of the Year Award
The Truman State University Alumni Association established the Bulldog Forever Volunteer of the Year Award in 2012 to honor a volunteer leader for exemplary service to the University through the Alumni Association or any of its affiliated organizations.
This award recognizes individuals who have served in a distinctive capacity. The Bulldog Forever Alumni Volunteer Award recognizes sustained, outstanding volunteer service to the University through the Alumni Association, and reflects length and depth of service on the part of the recipient.
Each year, one award is given to a member of the Truman Alumni Association who is a current member of a chapter and/or club. The Alumni Association encourages and appreciates the financial support of alumni gifts to the University. However, the Volunteer Award is intended for and elevates the service and time given to the University by our volunteers.

A. Be a member of the Truman State University Alumni Association (If you graduated from the University, or are an active volunteer and member of an alumni chapter, you ARE a member of the Truman State University Alumni Association).

We Want Your Nominations
"I love my local alumni chapter. Our group does so many things around the city that I never knew existed. It's a great way to meet people outside your normal social circle and of course, network! It's a low-commitment, fun way to still be involved with the University and get to hear about Truman's happenings."
