The Wenatchee Valley College Alumni Association is accepting nominations for the 2017 WVC Distinguished Alumni Award. Nomination forms must be submitted and/or postmarked by March 15.

The purpose of the WVC Distinguished Alumni Award is to recognize an alumnus who has distinguished him or herself in his/her chosen professional field; made significant contributions to his or her community on a local, state, national or international level; and has demonstrated integrity in his/her personal life and gained the respect of his/her peers. A group may also be considered for the award, but all members must be alumni. To qualify for this award, the alumnus/a must have attended WVC for a year or longer.

The award dates back over 30 years, with recent recipients including the WeHoGis, or Wells House Girls (2015); Jerry Kenoyer (2014); Lori Van Lith, CMA (2012); Juan Esparza, Ruth Esparza, Elsa Esparza and Claudia Valdez (2011); Ronald L. Adolphi, Ph.D. (2010); Marian Williams (2009) and Mike Dempsey (2008).

Dillis “Dick” Burgess-Ward received the 2016 WVC Distinguished Alumni of the Year award for his service in the military, career and dedication to the WVC Alumni Association, and contribution to the community.
