SPC Alumni Relations Office seeks 2021 Distinguished Alumni nominations


LEVELLAND – The South Plains College Alumni Relations Office is accepting applications for the 2021 Distinguished Alumni honor. In the past, honorees have been recognized as part of events associated with May commencement ceremonies but starting in 2020, the honor was presented as part of the annual Scholarship Banquet. The 2021 Presidential Reception for Distinguished Alumni honorees is set for Nov. 4 (Thursday).

“Our goal is to honor those former students who got their start at SPC and continued on to build their professional careers and make an impact on their communities,” said Missy Passmore, alumni relations coordinator at SPC. “Presenting the Distinguished Alumni award at the annual Scholarship Banquet is a wonderful way to highlight what the future might hold for dedicated students such as those scholarship recipients and their donors invited to attend this banquet.”

Passmore said nominations are open to all former students of SPC who have made noteworthy accomplishments in their professional career and in their communities. The award has been presented to former students in a variety of professions including pharmacy, education, welding, philanthropy as well as medical professionals to name a few. The honor is not limited to any specific field or profession.

Nominees for the award must be former students for which the college was a legitimate part of their educational career. They must have worked at least 10 years in their chosen profession or have made significant contributions in their career if fewer than 10 years. Additionally, they must be recognized for outstanding contributions and achievements by colleagues or employers. All nominations are screened by the Awards Committee which submits its award recommendations to the President of the College. The recommendations are affirmed by the South Plains College Board of Regents through an official resolution bestowing the award.

Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 27, 2021.

It is easier than ever to submit a nomination or even to self-nominate via our online form – just search “alumni” on the SPC homepage, southplainscollege.edu.
