PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas--Prairie View A&M University is pleased to announce that it is now accepting nominations for the 2009 PVAMU Humanitarian Award.
The PVAMU Humanitarian Award is awarded annually to both a PVAMIU student and a member of the community, whose lives exemplify a spirit of love and helpfulness to others.
One of PVAMU’s most prestigious awards given to a student or non-student individual, the Humanitarian Award awardees will both be announced and presented in full regalia during the Prairie View A&M University spring commencement exercises May 2009.
In recognition that service is one of the highest ideals to which one can aspire and consistent with the centuries old tradition of universities recognizing outstanding service, Prairie View A&M University established the Humanitarian Award in 2005.
