Oakland University’s Director of Alumni Relations Adrienne Bass was recognized at this year’s Hall of Honor ceremony hosted by the Department of Athletics.
Bass is the 2010 recipient of the George Wibby Award, which recognizes an outstanding campus partner to Oakland Athletics.
While serving Oakland’s Alumni Association, Bass has been an avid supporter of the Athletics department, leveraging the resources of both organizations to help create a dynamic partnership that serves the interests of the university, according to Simon Dover, associate director of athletics at Oakland.
“Adrienne’s contributions to our department have been immense,” Dover said. “As a leader in the Alumni Association, she has worked year in and year out to establish a strong relationship with athletics. This award could have been given to her many times.”
Bass’ efforts to enhance alumni outreach through athletics include establishing an OUAA-sponsored seating section for alumni and friends of alumni at university sporting events. She took her place in the Hall of Honor on Friday, Feb. 5, along with a distinguished class of seven former Oakland University standout athletes.
