Northwood University's Distinguished Women's Award

About The Award

In 1970, the Northwood University Board of Trustees, under the inspiration of its founders Dr. Arthur E. Turner and Dr. R. Gary Stauffer, established the Distinguished Women's Award to recognize the enormous contribution women make to communities, businesses, volunteer agencies, and public and private sector services world-wide. It is awarded annually and never in absentia. Each Distinguished Woman receives a medal that was originally designed by the late sculptor, Giulio Tamassy.

Meet the Class of 2009.

The awards honor high achievement in areas specific to Northwood's distinctive philosophy. The Distinguished Women serve as role models for students and are encouraged to become involved with the university and our students in a variety of meaningful ways.
