Published: Thursday, May 15, 2014 5:11 p.m. CDT

SUGAR GROVE – Nominations are being sought for Waubonsee Community College’s 2014 Distinguished Contributor and Distinguished Alumnus awards.

The Distinguished Contributor Award annually honors an individual who has made outstanding contributions or given exemplary support to Waubonsee Community College.

A distinguished contributor is someone who has supported the general operation of the college in either a personal or professional capacity and has contributed to the overall growth and expansion of the college’s mission. The nominee’s commitment may have enhanced a program, operation and/or future development of the college with which such results would not have occurred without the effort.

The college staff, community residents and officials or community college leaders must also recognize the person as having made an extraordinary commitment to promote the college and its mission. The nominee must have documented evidence of contributions to the community and/or the educational community.

Employees and retirees of Waubonsee Community College are not eligible to receive the award.

The Distinguished Alumnus Award is an award for outstanding graduates of Waubonsee Community College. It honors a graduate who shows evidence of personal/professional support for the college, its growth, development and mission. The individual must have documented evidence of a distinguished record in his or her chosen profession and/or occupation; documented evidence of contributions and service to his or her community; and have demonstrated a continued interest in lifelong education. 

Nominations must be received by Friday, May 30, and should be submitted to Kim Caponi by emailing
