2019 Call for Nominations for Norman J. and Gerry Sue Arnold Alumni Awards

The Arnold School of Public Health is seeking nominations for its annual alumni awards that will be presented at the 2019 Hooding Ceremony.

About the Award

Mr. Arnold was an influential business leader whose steadfast commitment to a healthier South Carolina lives on in the important work of talented alumni, faculty, staff, and students. Gerry Sue Arnold is a wife, mother, grandmother, a community volunteer, and also a tireless advocate for a healthier South Carolina.

On November 21, 2000, the School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina was named for Norman J. Arnold. Thanks to a generous endowment from Norman and his wife, Gerry Sue, the Arnold School is better able to serve its students, the citizens of the state, as well as to promote the health of people.
