Outstanding Alumni Awards

Outstanding alumnus nomination process

Each year the Beeghly College of Education recognizes outstanding alumni from the college. One alumnus is selected annually from each of the BCOE academic departments plus, when deemed appropriate by the selection committee, a college-wide service recognition is awarded.

One alumnus will be selected for an award from each of the three BCOE program areas:

  • Counselor
  • Administrator
  • Educator

We encourage you to submit a nomination. Nominations for the 2016-2017 academic year close on March 15, 2017.
