Wisner award to highlight campus ceremony

The 2011 Campus Awards Ceremony will be at 3:30 p.m. May 3 in Berger Hall, and for the first time will feature the Ron Wisner Human Spirit and Leadership Award.

The annual spring ceremony honors members of the UCCS community for their contributions and work during the past year. The Ron Wisner award to an outstanding student leader is new to this year’s event and will honor the memory of Ron Wisner, dean of students from 1979 to 2003.
