Alumni Recognized for Achievement in their Fields

Twenty-one College of Arts and Sciences alumni were recognized for their career achievements during 2015 Homecoming and Family Week held October 23-25. The college hosted a special awards reception for the alumni honorees.

“CAS alumni are represented in government, medicine, science, journalism, aviation, law and education. There is even a state representative from the Michigan Legislature,” said Dr. Keith Hearit, interim dean for the College of Arts and Sciences. “I am gratified to see the great accomplishments of our alumni—who got their start in CAS.”

During their visit, several honorees met with current WMU students in their discipline of study.

This year's Homecoming theme was “Honoring our Heritage.” During tailgate activities prior to the football game between WMU and University of Miami, CAS was highly visible with its own tent that provided the “CAS Heritage Challenge” game. In keeping with the Homecoming theme, the heritage/trivia game featured a Q&A about the history of CAS and WMU.

“The CAS tent was the most interactive tent of all the colleges,” said Hearit proudly. “Visitors were both impressed and excited with what they learned about the college’s rich history.”
