Madison, NJ (October 23, 2008) – In ceremonies held on October 11, 2008 Fairleigh Dickinson University announced that Sherri Glaab is the 2008 recipient of Fairleigh Dickinson’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award. This award is presented to an alumnus who has graduated in the past 15 years and has achieved exceptional success in his or her profession.
