The recent alumnus award went to Adam M. Hogue of Lincoln, class of 2003, a Lowell native who is an adviser at a financial-planning firm in Danvers as well as the author of the book, “Shaping the Battlefield,” about his experiences during an 11-month military deployment in Afghanistan.
The University Alumni Awards recognize graduates who have gone on to distinguish not only themselves but also the institution with their exceptional leadership, professional success and service to the campus and community. Recipients are nominated by faculty and staff, community members and fellow graduates. Since 1998, more than 100 alumni of UMass Lowell and its predecessor institutions have been recognized.
“The alumni honored each year come from different backgrounds, degree programs and hometowns. What they have in common is how they have put their UMass Lowell education to work to build successful careers, to further the mission of the university and to better their communities,” UMass Lowell Chancellor Marty Meehan said in a release.
