BOG Warrior Unsung Hero Award

Around the world, the coronavirus pandemic has created countless challenges while also inspiring many to find unique, innovative ways to make a difference. It's no wonder that within the Wayne State University community, many have generously stepped up to help others. Such acts of heroism, which too often go unnoticed, are a testament to the Warrior spirit.

In recognition of the remarkable response of our community to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Wayne State Board of Governors recently established an award to shine a light the university's own leading examples. The Board of Governors Warrior Unsung Hero Award honors those whose selfless efforts reflect the university's mission of meaningful engagement in its urban community.

In May 2020, members of the Wayne State community were invited to help the board identify faculty, staff and students for this award. Nominations were subsequently reviewed by members of the Board of Governors, who have selected recipients. Recipients have been invited to virtually attend the Board of Governors meeting on June 19, 2020, to be presented with the Board of Governors Warrior Unsung Hero Award.
