Each year the Alumni Association Board selects alumni to honor at Homecoming Weekend each fall. Awards provide an opportunity for the school and classmates to celebrate lives of service, professional contributions and personal engagement. They also provide an opportunity to inspire each other, particularly for our students to hear about and from people who share their alma mater.
Award categories are: Lifetime Service Award (recognizes contributions to the broader community, church, world), Alumnus of the Year (celebrates professional and personal accomplishments and contributions), Community Engagement Award (recognizes unique contribution to community building) and Young Alumnus (under age 40).
