2011 Chancellor’s Dinner Benefits Merit Scholarships, Recognizes Excellence

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the UC Riverside Alumni Awards of Distinction, more than 325 campus friends, students, leaders and donors gathered together for the Chancellor’s Dinner on October 29, 2011. Colorful lights transformed Highlander Union Building’s main ballroom into a showcase for the stories of UCR’s outstanding alumni, scholarship recipients and the donors who make those scholarships possible. Chancellor Timothy P. White spoke of the transformative role that UCR plays in the lives of its nearly 21,000 students and thanked all those who contribute their personal and financial resources to sustain the institution’s mission. The Outstanding Young Alumnus Award was presented to acclaimed Bollywood choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan (’02) and the Alumni Service Award was presented to agricultural banking executive Vernon Crowder (’73, ‘75). Internationally known best-selling author Susan Elizabeth George (’70) was honored with the Distinguished Alumni Award, while Chancellor White presented Nick (’70) and Susan Goldware with the UCR Medallion in recognition of their numerous volunteer and philanthropic contributions to the campus. The event was sponsored by the UCR Alumni Association and the UCR Foundation.
