Sherry Anklam Memorial Award
The Sherry Anklam Memorial Award is presented to one or more student members associated with our chapter each Spring and/or Fall.
The Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter of AITP renamed this award program to honor the memory of Sherry Anklam, a Chapter Past President who embodied all of the best values that this award is based on. Sherry passed away in 1995 at the early age of 44, but not before leaving her mark on AITP, the Northeastern Wisconsin Chapter of AITP, and the IT profession. She provided a role model for those who knew her with her dedication to excellence in all she pursued including educational pursuits, ethical standards, a work ethic second to none, and her dedication to the profession through AITP.
This award, which is presented in the spring and fall of each year to worthy applicants, is restricted to AITP student members in good standing associated with the Northeastern Wisconsin professional chapter.
The criteria for selection for this award include academic achievement, leadership, AITP participation, and community involvement.
The chapter board also can/does make awards directly to its student chapters for worthwhile educational projects that it believes will benefit the student chapter members and embody the ideals that Sherry stood for. One such project is the annual National Collegiate Conference (NCC) where student chapters have received funds to defray their cost to attend.
