Each year, Homecoming is dedicated to a Northern Arizona University staff or faculty member who has shown their Lumberjack pride through exceptional service to the university. Throughout the week of Homecoming, this individual is celebrated for all they have done. This year, that dedicatee is Brandon Cruickshank, who has served in both academic and administrative leadership roles at NAU for 25 years. He has contributed to many departments on campus and is an integral asset to the community of Flagstaff.
The community has a chance to honor Cruickshank at the Dedicatee Banquet at 6 p.m. in Ashurst Auditorium. Attendees will be served a buffet-style dinner and will have the chance to be a part of honoring Cruickshank alongside former dedicatees such as 2018 dedicatee Bruce Fox and 2017 dedicatee Judy Manor. See a full list of past dedicatees. This year’s dedicatee also will be honored by his closest family and friends as speakers tell the many stories of why Cruickshank was nominated.
