As Weatherford College celebrates its 150th year, college officials are continuing the tradition of honoring outstanding alumni. WC is seeking nominations for the 2019 Alumnus of the Year and Distinguished Alumnus awards.
The deadline to submit nominations is 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22, in the Institutional Advancement Office.
WC will honor one Alumnus of the Year and up to two Distinguished Alumni at the college’s annual Alumni Awards event. This year’s awards ceremony and luncheon will take place Friday, April 12, in the Doss Student Center.
Nominees will be evaluated on contributions to society, performance in their field of expertise, loyalty to Weatherford College and other factors. A committee made up of former award winners, representatives from WC employee groups, leaders from the Alumni Association, board members and others will meet to select this year’s honorees.
The Alumnus of the Year Award was established in 1967, and the Distinguished Alumni Award began in 1994. A list of previous award winners is posted online at www.wc.edu/alumni/alumni-awards.
Nomination forms are located on the WC website. Go to www.wc.edu and click on the Alumni tab and select Alumni Nomination Form. For more information, call the Institutional Advancement Office at 817-598-6275.
