Since 1949, Clemson University has celebrated a “Mother of the Year.” For many years this award was given during the annual Mother’s Day celebration and parade which was one of the college’s most attended events on campus. Today, the Mother of the Year is recognized in Memorial Stadium where she participates in the “dotting of the i” during Clemson’s annual Homecoming festivities each Fall.

The Mother of the Year is selected by the Clemson Student Alumni Council and Tiger Brotherhood. The Mother of the Year is someone who loves Clemson, shows a great passion for the community and lives a life that exemplifies the Clemson spirit.

The Clemson Student Alumni Council and Tiger Brotherhood are now accepting nominations for the 2023 Mother of the Year. Nominations close on Friday, September 15, 2023. Complete the form below to submit a nominee for this year’s recognition. Click here to email Aly Friend with questions.
