Nominations for the 2022 Gomes Honors are Now Open!
The Alumni/Alumnae Council (AAC) is pleased to announce that the nominations are officially being accepted for the 2022 Peter J. Gomes, STB ’68 Distinguished Alumni Honors.
Each year the Alumni/Alumnae Council Chairperson selects a theme which helps focus the Council’s work and guides the selection of the annual Gomes honorees. This year’s theme is Nature. Our planet is in the throes of an unprecedented climate emergency, largely due to our human impact, and it is imperative that we focus our attention on how we can slow the devastation. At the same time, it is just as vital that we celebrate and honor the Earth, and the multitude ways humans and nature are positively interconnected.
Nature is a balm, a unifier, a source of inspiration, healing and nourishment, and humans are also advocates, allies, and custodians of the natural world. We seek to celebrate extraordinary HDS alumni/ae who have dedicated themselves and their work to honoring this connection in any sector/s—the arts, science, religion and spirituality, politics, business, education, design, sports, international relations, and everything in between.
If you or someone you know is an extraordinary HDS alumni/ae who has dedicated themselves or their work to this Nature connection, please nominate them via the online form by Thursday, December 9. With your help, we look forward to recognizing and celebrating another remarkable cohort of HDS alumni this year.
