Nolan remains active in the University, including a stint on the KU School of Law Board of Governors, as well as his work with the Wichita Network board. Andy and his wife live in Wichita with their two future Jayhawks: Charlie (14) and James (8).

Heath Peterson, president of the KU Alumni Association,  presented the award to Nolan at the Wichita KU Kickoff event on August 15.

About the award

The award is named for Dick Wintermote, c’51, who served as the executive director of the Association from 1963 to 1983. His legacy represents the importance of building a strong volunteer network, the need for a dues-paying membership program and establishing the KU Alumni Association as one of the premier associations of graduates in the country.
