Each year, Pomona College recognizes an alumnus, alumna or alumni for their selfless commitment and ongoing volunteer service to the College. The Alumni Distinguished Service Award was inaugurated in 1991.
When “Rebecca” Jiaqi Chen ’17 started at Pomona College, she did not have any experience with the theatre arts. Today, she’s wrapping up her senior project based on the play Trojan Women: A Love Story.
The Faculty Alumni Service Award honors faculty "in recognition of exemplary service to the alumni association over a period of years." This year, the award honors William Polk Russell Professor of Mathematics Shahriar Shahriari.

"I hope that our contributions help Pomona continue its tradition of excellence, and make it possible for students to attend and graduate. Even if our individual gifts are not major gifts, collectively we can make a difference."
