Mott Community College’s Distinguished Alumni Award was established in 2002 for the purpose of recognizing truly outstanding women and
men who have provided an inspirational impact to students and/or the community and
for their significant contributions to career achievement and community service. By
honoring our former students we hope to inspire today’s student to strive for both
personal and professional success.
