ARCHBOLD, OHIO – Northwest State Community College is accepting nominations for the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award. This award is the most notable recognition presented by the NSCC Alumni Association. Developed in 1998, the Distinguished Alumni Award honors alumni who have achieved recognized prominence in their careers and made significant contributions to their communities and the lives of others.
“Northwest State has more than 8,800 alumni, and eighty-four percent continue to live and work in the five-county area,” said Robbin Wilcox, director of development. “These graduates are making a positive impact throughout northwest Ohio, and we want to hear those stories.”
To be eligible, at least three years must have elapsed since the nominee graduated from NSCC with an associate degree. All who are nominated will receive a letter announcing their nomination and a form requesting additional information. After all documentation has been received, the NSCC Alumni Association will form a committee that will select the winners for 2014.
“The Distinguished Alumni Award goes beyond recognizing the accomplishments of NSCC alumni. These award winners demonstrate, to both current and potential students, what can be achieved through education and hard work,” said Wilcox.
Nomination forms are available online, and more information can be found in the alumni section at NorthwestState.edu. To submit a nomination, contact Robbin Wilcox, director of development, at 419.267.1460 or rwilcox@NorthwestState.edu. Nominations are due by March 29.
