Nominations Open for Distinguished Alumni of 2019

2019 Distinguished Alumni Award

The Midlands Technical College Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes alumni who, over an extended period of time and/or through a singular achievement, have achieved exemplary success in their field, or provided extraordinary service to Midlands Technical College, their community, state, or nation.

Help bring deserving recognition to fellow alumni like Tammi Byrd, last year’s winner, who developed a program to deliver dental hygiene services to children who might otherwise not have dental care.

"I had no idea the program I helped start would evolve into all of this, and it all began at Midlands Technical College,” Byrd said. “The professors there told me to focus on being a professional and not just having a job – and that’s what I did!”

Nominees must be graduates of a Midlands Technical College (or one of the early institutions that formed MTC) degree, diploma, or academic certificate program who, through their citizenship, service, caring, and generous spirit, personify qualities and character for all Midlands Technical College students and graduates to emulate.

Nominations for the Distinguished Alumni Award can be submitted using the downloadable online form. The nomination deadline is November 5, 2018. The award will be presented early in 2019.
