Distinguished Graduates

The Distinguished Graduates Awards (formerly Hall of Fame) began in 1986. Each summer, the Alumni Association and former staff and faculty select alumni as Distinguished Graduates. All nominees remain candidates for review each year. The Distinguished Graduates Awards are presented at half time during Alumni Night each year. If you would like to nominate someone for the Award, please submit the nominating form to the Alumni Association. Candidates are selected for both their high school and post high school achievements.
