The Shane Carlin & Annie Sit Inclusion Award

The University of Kentucky acknowledges outstanding student service and commitment to inclusion and diversity at The Annual University Honors & Recognition Awards Program.  The Shane Carlin and Annie Sit Inclusion Award recognizes the achievements of two students that have made strides in assisting to move our campus forward. 

Shane is a 1995 graduate of the University of Kentucky and has been a Student Affairs professional since that time.  While at UK, Shane was involved in many student organizations.  He and his wife want to celebrate and appreciate students who strive to make the University of Kentucky more inclusive.  The Carlin's developed this award to recognize students that work in social justice, diversity and inclusion in the most impacting and discerning manner, which transcends race.
