As dean of enrollment at University of Missouri-St. Louis, Alan Byrd has been a pivotal leader for UMSL on several fronts the past seven years. 

“I feel really fortunate,” Byrd says. “I have the opportunity to help students every single day.”

That dedication to education has now earned him a 2017 Excellence in Education Award from the St. Louis American Foundation, which will celebrate Byrd and seven other recipients at a Sept. 23 gala downtown.
