The Alumni Association honors UM graduates with special awards throughout the year.
At Charter Day, the University's birthday celebration in February, UMAA presents its Montana Alumni Award. Linda McCarthy '85, M.P.A. '91, director of the Missoula Downtown Association, received the award in 2008.
At Homecoming in September UMAA will honor Distinguished Alumni Award recipients Jeff Hamilton '67, Spokane; Judith Blakely Morgan '60, La Jolla, California; and Garry South '76, Santa Monica, California.
Community Service Awards are presented at each home football game to alumni and friends who have brought recognition to UM through their support and service to their communities.
