The Distinguished Alumni Award

PVCC seeks to recognize outstanding PVCC alumni who have gained noteworthy success in their careers and who have made a positive difference for others through their success. The PVCC Educational Foundation established the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2016 to recognize alumni who have made a significant impact within the PVCC community or the community in which they live.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is presented based on the following criteria:

•    Community Service – Demonstration of a visible commitment to the community.
•    Impact – Accomplishments which have changed the community for the better.
•    Outstanding success – Significant career or personal achievements.
•    Role Model – Inspiring excellence in others.

Alumni, community members, colleagues and others are encouraged to nominate alumni. Those nominated will have achieved local, state, regional and/or national or international recognition for their contributions and success. Nominees will be recognized in PVCC news and communications; the award recipient will be recognized in communications and honored at graduation. The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2020.
