On March 24, 2016, we honored five alumni who have made remarkable contributions or attained significant achievements in their fields.

The CLA Alumni of Notable Achievement (ANA) program was created in 1994 as part of our 125th anniversary to celebrate and honor the significant achievements and contributions of our alumni. All ANA honorees have been nominated by CLA alumni, faculty, and staff.

Of the college's 148,000 living graduates, approximately 1,300 have been selected as recipients. By honoring our alumni, we recognize and celebrate not only their singular accomplishments but also the collective depth and breadth of their interests, talents, career paths and achievements in all sectors of society.
