Turning next to the Labroffs, Joyce said the couple’s nomination was endorsed by the College of the Arts, Athletics and “other campus groups who enjoy the Labroffs’ support throughout the year. They are truly outstanding advocates for Kennesaw State University.”
The Labroffs have served on the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee and on the selection committee for the Clendenin Graduate Fellows Program for several years. The nominating letter noted that the Labroffs spent more than 40 hours reviewing the more than 60 scholarship applications and meeting with some of the candidates this past year. As loyal KSU supporters, Joyce said, “the Labroffs can be spotted at campus events throughout the year … in all types of weather and they stay through the end of each event!”
Accepting the award on behalf of her and her husband, Diann Labroff, a KSU alumna, said “The campus is continually changing and Kennesaw State is making steady progress, getting better all the time. It’s an honor to serve Kennesaw State University, and we look forward to helping it become an excellent university.”
