FSU Alumni Association recognizes Goindoo

PAHOKEE — Alain Goindoo, director of bands at Pahokee Middle School, was recognized with the Florida State University Alumni Association’s 2018 Notable Noles award, created to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of FSU’s young alumni.

The FSU Alumni Association’s Notable Noles program (formerly the Thirty Under 30) was created to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of Florida State’s young alumni. Each recipient must be an alumnus age 35 or younger who has made exceptional achievements and significant contributions to his or her profession, community/society or the university. The recipient must exemplify outstanding professional and personal development either through traditional channels or innovative approaches. The FSU Alumni Association has selected 22 young alumni as the 2018 Notable Noles.

Mr. Goindoo is receiving this award for his hard work, dedication and commitment to Pahokee and the surrounding communities as well as additional professional accomplishments.

“This recognition is especially meaningful because the recipients are chosen from a distinguished group of peers,” says Julie Cheney, president and CEO of the FSU Alumni Association. “These young alumni have distinguished themselves as leaders within their professions, and their hard work and determination is both an inspiration and a testament to the values of Florida State University.”

Mr. Goindoo was recognized along with the 21 other recipients at the Young Alumni reception and awards ceremony in Tallahassee on Friday, Nov. 16.

The Notable Noles award program, then named Thirty Under 30, was established in 2012. To date, 180 graduates have received the honor. In 2017, the Young Alumni Council was established to build a culture of leadership among Florida State’s young alumni. They host a variety of events throughout the country each year to engage young alumni. To learn more about the Young Alumni Awards and the Young Alumni Council, visit alumni.fsu.edu.
