Medhat Ahmed, coordinator of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at CU Anschutz Medical Campus, has been recognized among the Men of Distinction, Excellence and Leadership (M.O.D.E.L.) presented by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.

Ahmed was nominated for the award by Lia Nelson-James, coordinator of Student Assistant Services at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Ahmed also is director of the Undergraduate Pre-Health Program and coordinates Outreach and Pipeline Programs.

The M.O.D.E.L. award recognizes and honors the outstanding achievements of men in the Denver community who exemplify the values of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Those values are excellence in education, career and community. The award will be presented to Ahmed at the annual M.O.D.E.L. Awards Luncheon Sept. 15 at the Marriott City Center.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority became America’s first Greek-letter organization established by Black College women in 1908. Through the years, Alpha Kappa Alpha’s function has become more complex growing from one undergraduate chapter to an international organization with a membership of more than 200,000 women. The first chapter came to Colorado in 1949.
