The PINNACLE was introduced by Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1989 to formally recognize and acknowledge the contributions and achievements of its most distinguished alumni. Today’s ceremony honors the newest members of what has become an ongoing organization for leading FDU alumni. Since its founding in 1942, the University has been committed to providing its students with the education, values and encouragement needed to become active and contributing members of the larger world community. More than 118,000 FDU alumni have gone on to enrich and improve society through their work, volunteer activities and personal actions. Among their ranks, a select few have achieved the highest possible level of performance — the pinnacle — in their respective pursuits.
