Chaplin Distinguished Alumni: John "Chip" Acierno, III '83 This spring, the FIU Alumni Association will host its sixteenth annual Torch Awards Gala at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. The Torch Award is the highest honor bestowed upon alumni and faculty by the FIU Alumni Association, and recognizes their outstanding achievements. These FIU supporters are making positive impacts on their profession, the community and our university. Beyond paying tribute to FIU’s impressive supporters, the event will support the future construction of our FIU Alumni Center. Serving as a multi-purpose facility for academic, social and business gatherings, the space will recognize donors, share university history and showcase both student and alumni accomplishments. The FIU Alumni Center will foster and encourage lifelong connections between Panthers. Proceeds will also benefit the First Generation Scholarship Fund, providing financial support to qualified undergraduate students who are the first generation in their families to attain a college degree. All donations are matched 100% by the State of Florida, doubling donor impact and making dreams come true for many deserving students. Tickets and more information available at torchawards.fiu.edu.
