Presidential Award for Professional Achievement
Pi Chapter has in its membership many persons who have achieved outstanding success in their professional careers. These young, emerging leaders will serve as role models for our undergraduate members and those just starting their professional careers. A secondary goal is to firmly establish the breadth of professional careers available to graduates of today’s colleges of agriculture. This award will serve as a catalyst for nomination to the Grand Presidents Award for Professional Achievement.
The award will be presented at the annual awards presentation. The Board of Directors will serve as the selection committee and will administer the selection and nomination process. Nominees may either be self nominated or nominated by another.
The Awardee will be expected to attend the Pi Chapter Career Day and make presentation about their career and the ways that Alpha Gamma Rho helped him in his career.
Any Pi Chapter alumnus age 40 or less is eligible for the award. A broad definition of professions is to be encouraged. An identifiable career linkage to the food and agriculture system is desirable, but not required. Awardee must be able to attend the Pi Chapter Career Day.
