SUGAR GROVE – Nominations are being accepted for Waubonsee Community College’s 2020 Distinguished Contributor and Distinguished Alumnus Awards. Nominations must be received by Jan. 31 to be considered for this year. The awards will be presented to the recipients at the college’s commencement ceremonies on May 16.  

According to a news release from the college, the Waubonsee Distinguished Alumnus Award is presented to outstanding graduates of Waubonsee Community College in recognition of their unselfish and continued support of the college. The nominees are to have completed an associate degree at Waubonsee; have documented evidence of a distinguished record in their chosen profession and/or occupation; have documented evidence of contribution and service to their community; and have demonstrated a lifelong interest in education. The nominee cannot be a current employee of Waubonsee.

According to the release, the Waubonsee Distinguished Contributor Award is presented to individuals, groups, or organizations who have made outstanding contributions or given exemplary support to the college. The award will be given to a nominee who has supported an area of the general operation of the college in either a personal or professional capacity that has contributed to the overall growth and expansion of the college’s mission.

Nominees are to have contributed to the institution in a way that has enhanced a program, the operation of and/or the future development of the college that went beyond the ordinary and such results would probably not have occurred without the nominee’s special efforts. Nominees should also be recognized by the college staff, community residents and officials or the college’s leaders as having made an extraordinary commitment to promoting the college and its mission. The nominee cannot be a current employee of Waubonsee.

Nominations can be submitted online at https://www.waubonsee.edu/distinguished-alumnus-award for the distinguished alumnus and at https://www.waubonsee.edu/distinguished-contributor-award for the distinguished contributor.
