The Spoon River College Alumni Association is seeking nominations of deserving individuals for their annual alumni awards. A SRC alumnus is anyone who has successfully completed a credit class at the college. There are four awards presented.
The Distinguished Alumni Award is given to the alumna or alumnus who has reached the pinnacle of her/his professional career. Their achievements should be those gaining at least state-wide recognition.
The Alumni Achievement Award is given to alumni as they progress up the “success” ladder. The achievement should have gained at least county-wide recognition. Achievement winners may receive more than one achievement award in their lifetime and could also receive the Distinguished Alumni award in later years.
The Outstanding Service Award is given to alumni who have made significant voluntary contributions to mankind in general and/or to the college. Persons other than alumni but who have had affiliation with the college will be considered.
The Distinguished Spoon River College Employee Award is given to someone who was previously employed by Spoon River College. This award is based upon the individual’s significant contributions to Spoon River College, its students, and the community.
The deadline for all nominations is June 8, 2012. The awards reception will take place in October.
