AU Bestows Gregory With High Honor

NBC “MTP” Host David Gregory won an award over the weekend from his alma mater, American University.

American University’s Alumni Board and Office of Alumni Relations awarded its four highest award honors—Alumni Achievement, Alumni Recognition, Alumni Eagle and the Rising Star—on Saturday, October 22, to notable alumni at the 2011 Alumni Awards Ceremony and Reception as part of the university’s All-American Alumni and Family Weekend.

Gregory won the Alumni Achievement Award.

“With so many accomplished and well deserving alumni, it was definitely not an easy decision to choose our awardees this year,” said Alumni Board member Jennifer Collins, ’94, chair of the Awards Committee and founder/president of The Event Planning Group.

Gregory is a 1992 alumnus from the School of International Service. The award recognizes alumni “who have distinguished themselves through their professional accomplishments.” Gregory is a member of the AU School of International Service Dean’s Advisory Council and has been previously honored as the AU School of International Service alumnus of the year.
