ETSU Foundation Margin of Excellence Award

The East Tennessee State University Foundation Margin of Excellence Award was established to be given only on occasion when an individual(s) has gone above and beyond the call of supporting the East Tennessee State University Foundation by exhibiting a strong commitment to helping the university, its faculty, staff and students to become the best regional university in the country. Consideration will not only be financial but also in loyalty, for every aspect of supporting the mission of East Tennessee State University and the East Tennessee State University Foundation.
