Re : Nominations for the 2021 Xavier-Kuangchi Award for Exemplary Alumni
We are pleased to announce the start of the nomination process for the 2021 Xavier-Kuangchi Award for Exemplary Alumni.
The award is named after St. Francis Xavier and Paul Hsü Kuangchi, from whom the school takes its English and Chinese names, respectively. It was established to honor alumni who clearly manifest the attributes that define the Xavier Ideal of “men fully alive, endowed with a passion for justice and the skills for development.” Through his service and leadership, the awardee must have had a positive impact on society, and his example should inspire our entire community to lead similarly exemplary lives.
While we are happy to receive nominations for alumni who have led exemplary lives of service in any field of endeavor, we would like to especially solicit nominations this year for alumni who have made substantive contributions in either of these two areas, in particular:
(a) Pandemic response (in any form, and not necessarily as medical front-liners), as a continuation of sustained social/charitable engagement
(b) Volunteer fire fighting
We would like to remind the community that because this award is for long-term social engagement, the selection criteria places particular importance on the sustained nature of the awardee’s service and contributions to society, and is not intended to recognize particular “heroic” acts of service.
Alumni who graduated from 1960 to 2001 are eligible for the 2021 awards. We would like to invite all members of the Xavier School community to help us identify worthy recipients of this award. Nomination forms are available at the Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) or online at <https://bit.ly/xkea2021>. Deadline for submission is on December 6, 2021.
For further inquiries, please call 0918- 9928437 or 8723-0481 loc. 1901-1903 and/or email us at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
