President's Distinguished Alumni Award Nominations

Thursday, November 1 - Friday, February 1

The 2019 President's Distinguished Alumni Award Application is available November 1, 2018 through February 1, 2019.  Established in 2010, the President’s Distinguished Alumni Award has been presented annually to graduates of Atlantic Cape that have differentiated themselves through professional, public or community-based accomplishments. 

Nominations are reviewed by the Atlantic Cape Alumni Advisory Committee and their recipient recommendations are submitted to the college president for consideration. To recognize the Atlantic Cape Foundation's 40th Anniversary, the Alumni Advisory Committee will select four recipients for the 2019 award; one each from the late 1960's/1970's, 1980's, 1990's, and 2000's.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR! The Alumni Advisory Committee will also select four nominees under the age of 40 that represent our finest rising stars. The Top Four Under 40 category serves to recognize young alumni that are excelling in their professions, contributing to their communities, and demonstrating a commitment to Atlantic Cape's mission and values.

Nominate an alumnus/alumna today! All nominations are due by February 1, 2019 for consideration.
