Penn State Alumni Achievement Awards


Nicole Reed Fry, associate director at Navigant, is one of 10 Penn State Alumni who will be recognized at the university's Alumni Achievement Awards on March 23.

Alumni Achievement Award recipients are accomplished graduates, 35 or younger, who have been nominated by an academic college or campus and invited by the president of the university to return to Penn State to share their expertise with students and the university community. Honorees demonstrate to students that Penn State alumni succeed in exceptional fashion at an early age.

Aside from her work at Navigant, Reed Fry, a 2005 and 2008 graduate of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, co-founded Boom Algae, a startup venture that converts waste CO2 from breweries into algae-derived omega-3 oils. She remains connected to Penn State by serving as an alumni mentor for both Schreyer Honors College and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. She is a graduate of the Schreyer Honors College, and in addition to her Penn State degrees, she also earned an MBA from the University of Colorado Leeds School of Business.

During her return to campus, Reed Fry will meet and talk to students, sharing insights on her successes in life and business, before accepting her award during a ceremony.
