Nicholas Maki awarded GVSU Niemeyer Award
Date: April 16, 2012
Nicholas Maki (Classics and Philosophy) is a recipient of the 2012 Glenn A. Niemeyer Student Award.
The Niemeyer Awards are the most prestigious academic awards presented by the University and are given annually at the Spring Awards Banquet to two faculty members, two undergraduate students and two graduate students (one full-time student and one part-time student).
These awards are named for Glenn A. Niemeyer who retired from Grand Valley State in Spring 2001 after thirty-eight years of dedicated service. He was a pioneer faculty member and served as the institution’s first Provost from 1980-2001. The Niemeyer Awards are a tribute to the high regard the University has for Dr. Niemeyer and to the many outstanding contributions he made throughout his career.
The Awards honor faculty and students who strive for excellence in all aspects of a well-rounded academic experience.
