On Friday, March 4, 2022, associate professor of broadcasting and KRNU general manager Rick Alloway received a Family & Friends Recognition Award. This is the 28th time Alloway has received the award.

The award, formerly known as the Parents’ Recognition Award, recognizes faculty and staff who have made a significant difference in students’ lives. The Parents Association solicits nominations asking parents, family and friends to nominate a faculty or staff member.

The Family & Friends Recognition Awards is an annual ceremony organized by the Division of Student Affairs and co-sponsored by the UNL Teaching Council and UNL Parents Association, the Family & Friends Recognition Awards honor outstanding faculty and staff.

Certificates of recognition for contributions to students are given during the ceremony. The awards provide positive feedback to campus faculty and staff about the work they do with students. The honors also encourage the goal of good student and faculty relationships and provide recognition in an area often overlooked in the formal rewards system.
