WC calls for alumni award nominations

Continuing the tradition of recognizing outstanding former students, Weatherford College is seeking nominations for its 2021 Alumnus of the Year and Distinguished Alumnus awards.

WC will honor one Alumnus of the Year and up to two Distinguished Alumni Award winners at the college’s annual Alumni Awards event. This year’s awards ceremony and luncheon will take place Friday, April 16, at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford.

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 deadline to submit nominations is Friday, Feb. 26, in the Institutional Advancement Office.

The Alumnus of the Year Award was established in 1967, and the Distinguished Alumni Award began in 1994.
