Family of the Year

Nominations for the 2020 Family of the Year are now open!

Each year, during Parent & Family Weekend, Parent & Family Services celebrates a parent or family member that has been an inspiration to their student. These parents not only go above and beyond for their student, but they also support the University of Memphis community through volunteering, serving on committees, and being an ambassador for the university.  

Parent & Family Services invites students to nominate their family, parents and guardians whose lives have been an inspiration to their students and others as the 2020 Family of the Year. All families and parents who are nominated by their student will receive a congratulatory letter and a copy of the essay submission. Winners MUST be able to participate in the Tigers vs. Temple Football Game on Saturday October 24. Tickets will be provided for the game.  

Nominators will be notified by Friday, October 9, if their nominee was selected as a winner. For more information or questions, contact Rachel DuVall at rachel.duvall@memphis.edu or 901.678.4312.  2020 Nominations are now closed, and the winner will be announced during Parent & Family Weekend [From Home]!
