Alumni Achievement Award
Alyson Woloshyn (BA ’00 – Recreation and Leisure Studies)
Alyson Woloshyn’s philosophy that “you need to put back in more than you take out,” is not only a testament to her generous and humble spirit, but exemplifies the way she lived her life. At 32, Alyson was told she had lethal and incurable brain cancer. Instead of withdrawing, she set a goal of raising $50,000 (the cost of her treatment) as a means of giving back.
