Distinguished Alumni & Outstanding Retiree Award

Due to COVID19 and the restrictions to in-person events, we have gone virtual when possible. Please note not all of these events were held in 2020. As we go through 2021, we will determine what events we will be able to offer. Thank you for your understanding.

The Foundation celebrates the Distinguished Alumni & Outstanding Retiree Award Ceremony each year. The 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. Look for this exciting awards ceremony each year!
