Three Rivers College has opened nominations for its 2018 Distinguished Alumni Award. The award recognizes the accomplishments and achievements of the College’s graduates and former students. The award will be given at a recognition reception hosted by the College in spring 2018. The nomination deadline for the award is December 11. Nominations can be submitted at trcc.edu/distinguished.
“We’ve built a great tradition with our Distinguished Alumni Award over the last two years, and we’ve had the opportunity to honor two pillars of our community,” said Michelle Reynolds, Director of Development at Three Rivers. “I can’t wait to see the nominations for this year’s award.”
Reynolds noted that nominations submitted in previous years may be resubmitted for consideration for the 2018 award.
Nominations can be submitted by going to trcc.edu/distinguished and filling out the form provided there. Forms may also be mailed upon request. Nominees should be a graduate from or former student of Three Rivers College and will be judged on the merits of their personal and professional achievements. A committee drawn from College employees and the Three Rivers Endowment Trust will choose the winning nomination.
The 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award was awarded to Poplar Bluff resident and journalist Stan Berry, who serves as editor for the Daily American Republic. Berry also served as the keynote speaker at the College’s 2017 Commencement ceremony.
