Nominations Sought for STLCC Distinguished Alumni Award

May 30, 2008

The St. Louis Community College Foundation Board of Directors is seeking nominations for the first annual Distinguished Alumni Award. Designed to honor STLCC alumni for their professional and community accomplishments, up to five awards will be presented at the STLCC Foundation’s annual gala, "Taste of Class," on Saturday, Sept. 13, at the college’s Forest Park campus.

 

"Since 1964, when the first classes enrolled at the college, many individuals have achieved excellence in their field of endeavor or demonstrated service to the community through their personal or professional life," said Deborah Godwin, executive director of the STLCC Foundation. "The Distinguished Alumni Award will honor these individuals who serve as role models for the college’s current students and for future generations of graduates."

 

Although nominees must have attended St. Louis Community College, they are not required to be a graduate of the college.  However, preference will be given to those who have earned a certificate or completed a degree from programs such as education, public and community service, sports, media, government, business, healthcare, arts and entertainment. 

 

An independent panel of judges will review applications based on criteria, including the individual’s professional accomplishments and contributions to the community which transcend the norm. 

 

Completed nomination forms, which must be postmarked by June 30, should be sent to:

STLCC Foundation Distinguished Alumni Award

300 S. Broadway

St. Louis, MO 63102

The St. Louis Community College Foundation is focused on creating and fostering community linkages that support and advance the college’s mission of providing excellent educational opportunities for its students and the community by soliciting and administering gifts and funds for college scholarships and programs, capital projects and endowment.
