April 27, 2009
Nominations are being accepted through June 30 for the 2009 Pamela Wells Sheffield Award, which is presented annually to a woman who best embodies selfless service and commitment to Auburn University and the Auburn family.
The award was established April 27, 1991, by the Office of the President and the Athletic Department to honor, commemorate and perpetuate the memory and good works of Pamela Wells Sheffield. The award is coordinated by the Office of Alumni Affairs.
The award is presented to an Auburn woman - alumna, student or friend - in whose life are manifested the qualities of Pam Sheffield's dedication to Auburn - love, commitment and, above all, quality. Quantity of contribution will be considered, but quality of contribution, the daily love and care that marked Pam Sheffield's commitment will be of the essence in selecting the recipient of this award.
The first award was presented posthumously to Pamela Wells Sheffield '65 in 1991. Sheffield's work touched virtually every aspect of university life; her service to the university included involvement with students, academics, athletics, alumni affairs and the community.
