Honorary Family

Is your family the #1 Gorilla Family?

If you feel your family bleeds crimson…and gold, then nominate them for the 2017 PSU Honorary Family Award! Sponsored by the PSU Foundation and Advancement Ambassadors, this annual award will be presented during Family Day activities. The recipients are selected by a committee based on a student-submitted nomination and essay about the student’s family involvement, school spirit and Gorilla legacy! Your family will be recognized at a pre-game reception as well as during halftime of the Family Day football game.

Nominations for the 2017 Honorary Family are due Friday, September 1.

Sponsored by Advancement Ambassadors & the PSU Foundation, Inc.
