Oct. 8
Room 206, Natali Student Center


Alumnus Aaron Walton '68 will be presented with this year's Jennie Carter Leadership Award during a luncheon at noon Friday, Oct. 8 in room 206 of the Natali Student Center.

The award is named in honor of Elizabeth "Jennie" Adams Carter, Class of 1881, the university's first African-American graduate.

Cal U celebrates Jennie Carter Day each year on Oct. 9, her birthday. Because the date falls on a Saturday this year, the event has been moved ahead one day. 

Walton is the senior vice president of corporate affairs for Highmark Inc., where he has worked since 1970.

A member and past president of the Cal U Council of Trustees, he is vice chairman of the PASSHE Board of Governors. Walton also is a member of Cal U's Board of Presidential Advisors and the 2008 recipient of the University's Lillian M. Bassi Core Values Award.
