Weatherford College is seeking nominations for the 2015 Alumnus of the Year Award and Distinguished Alumni Award. The deadline to submit nominations is 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, in the Institutional Advancement Office.
Each year the college hosts an Alumni Awards Luncheon where one former student is honored as Alumnus of the Year and up to three former students are recognized as Distinguished Alumni. This year’s luncheon will take place Friday, April 17.
To receive one of these awards nominees will be evaluated on contributions to society, performance in their field of expertise, loyalty to Weatherford College and other factors.
Committees – made up of former award winners, representatives from WC employee groups, leaders from the Alumni Association, board members and others – will meet in February 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.
“When you look at our list of previous winners, it’s impressive,” said Brent Baker, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. “Weatherford College has produced some incredible leaders in a variety of fields over the years. It’s a pleasure to see our alumni honored each year.”
