The Carleton Alumni Association is now seeking nominations for the Dacie Moses Award.
Dacie Moses lived at 110 Union Street, three houses from the Carleton campus. She was involved with Carleton for 75 years, 50 years as an employee of the College. For the last 25 years of her life, until her death at age 97 in January 1981, her home was open to students 24 hours-a-day. There students found coffee, cribbage, and cookies, but mostly, they found warmth, generosity, openness, hospitality, humor, and acceptance. Dacie helped others through various crises even while she was overcoming her own problems; yet she was a person who counted the length of her life by friends and not years. Her generous lifestyle―not dependent on wealth, health, power or position―inspired students and friends of all ages.
The Dacie Moses Award was established in 1981. Each year the Alumni Association presents the Dacie Moses Award to the senior or seniors who best exemplify the characteristics of Dacie. Please send nominations to Brent Nystrom in the Alumni Affairs Office (via e-mail if you wish: email@example.com) by April 9. Please include with each nomination the names of three other persons at Carleton, including at least one student and one faculty member, who could write in support of your candidate, and a short statement of your own reasons as to why your nominee would be an appropriate recipient.
