Distinguished Alumni

At Northwest College, we are proud of every student. The Distinguished Alumni awards give us an opportunity to profile students who have gone on to “do well” in the world, and who have remembered Northwest College along the way.  

 

Each year, Northwest College honors an alum who has demonstrated 

             Distinguished record of performance in their field of endeavor, and/or

             Significant academic achievement at an accredited transfer institution(s), and/or

             Outstanding service to and involvement in their community or NWC alumni affairs

 

Nominees for this honor must have attended NWC at least 15 years prior to the award (some exceptions) and be able to present at NWC Commencement Exercises to accept the award and speak to graduates.
