HACC's Distinguished Alumni Award

Learn how the HACC Alumni Association recognizes exceptional alumni.

What is the Distinguished Alumni Award?

The Distinguished Alumni Award is the highest honor an alumnus can receive from HACC. We welcome those chosen to receive this award into HACC's Circle of Distinction. The welcome ceremony occurs at a special celebration dinner.

This award salutes the achievements of outstanding alumni who:

  • Exemplify the HACC "spirit" with their personal lives, professional achievements and community service.
  • Serve as an inspiration to other alumni and current students.

When does the Alumni Association accept nominations?

The HACC Alumni Association seeks nominations for its Distinguished Alumni Award every two years. The nomination form for the 2019 awards will be available starting in October 2018.
