If you are unfamiliar with this award, this brief paragraph highlights its history: The University of South Carolina Upstate began a tradition in 1981 with the presentation of the Earl Gordon Medal for University Service. Mr. Gordon, who died in January that year, was the first Dean of Students at the university. The medals are presented each year to two members of the graduating class selected on the basis of service to the university and its students, involvement in campus activities, service to the community, and nobility of character- qualities that were reflected in the life of Mr. Gordon. Nominations are being accepted through Friday, March 11, 2011.
