Recognition of our ILR alumni and friends

ILR currently celebrates our distinguished alumni and friends with the following awards:

Jerome Alpern Distinguished Alumni Award
Honorable William B. Groat Alumni Award

These awards, The Groat Award and The Alpern Award, named for notable personages in the School’s history, are presented in recognition of professional accomplishments and service to the School.  They are presented at an annual spring celebration event which is designed to showcase and honor the award recipients in the context of a gala celebration of the School.  The event has become a tradition. 

It represents a celebration of the accomplishments of all of our distinguished alumni and friends -- all of you -- ­the entire ILR network.
