In front of a sold-out crowd, the 2018 Founders’ Day Awards program honored members of the ASU community for the impact and excellence of their work March 21 in Tempe. The awards ceremony, hosted by the ASU Alumni Association, has been a signature event for the university for decades, and honors individuals who exemplify the spirit of the founders of the Territorial Normal School of Arizona, ASU’s predecessor institution.
