The Plymouth State University (PSU) Alumni Association recently announced its 2020 Alumni Award recipients. Six alumni and one staff member were recognized for their commitment to serving PSU, their professions and their communities.

“Plymouth State University is extremely fortunate to have such exceptional, dedicated and caring alumni,” said Donald L. Birx, Ph.D., President, Plymouth State University. “Their continued service to the University helps to set us apart from other educational institutions and inspires current students to consider how they can contribute to the PSU community – both while they’re on campus and when they graduate.”

Outstanding Graduate Alumni Award

Charles Lloyd, Ed.D., of Bow, NH, graduate class of 2007, and 2011 recipient, certificate of advanced graduate studies, was honored for his leadership in education, working to transform the community college experience for students across the state of New Hampshire. Lloyd began his career at New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI), working in student life, teaching businesses and leadership classes, and coaching men’s basketball, and currently serves as President of White Mountains Community College. 

His passion and dedication to helping students achieve their goals through higher education has continued to grow over the years.

The Alumni Awards are typically conferred at commencement, but the PSU Alumni Association has modified its annual tradition because of the coronavirus pandemic.
