Humboldt State University’s Sponsored Programs Foundation will host the annual McCrone Awards Banquet at 4 p.m. April 24 in the Great Hall above the College Creek Marketplace. The event is free and open to the public.
The annual ceremony recognizes the accomplishments of HSU’s newer faculty members and one outstanding graduate student. The awards are named after former HSU President Alistair McCrone, who led the university from 1974 to 2002.
