The Distinguished Alumni Award
The Distinguished Alumni Award represents the most prestigious award presented by the Alumni Association of Northwest State. This award was established in 1998 to honor graduates of Northwest State Community College who have achieved recognized prominence in their chosen career and have made significant contributions to their profession, community and the lives of others. Recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award represent the ideal of a committed, industrious, and caring individual to whom Northwest State Community College may look as an example. The Distinguished Alumni Award is given each year at an awards banquet. Plaques with each recipient’s photo are also placed in the Engineering Technologies and Science Center so that past, present, and future students of Northwest State Community College can view these Distinguished Alumni.
