Circle of Excellence Award

The Circle of Excellence Award was created in 2007 to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of LSUS. It expresses annual appreciation to outstanding LSUS alumni who are leaders in our community, region or nation - those who are using their LSUS degrees in a significant manner, either professionally or through volunteerism, to bring recognition to the University.
