MCC Foundation seeks ‘distinguished alumni’ nominations

CRYSTAL LAKE – The Friends of McHenry County College Foundation seeks nominations for the MCC Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognizes those who stand out in their profession and make their communities a better place to live and work.

The recipient will be recognized at the inaugural MCC Distinguished Alumni Reception on April 18 at McHenry County College.

“Our alumni are a significant part of our community and they have given their time, talent and resources to help move the college forward,” Bill Brennan, executive director of the Friends of MCC Foundation, said in a news release.

“This ceremony will be an opportunity to celebrate their achievements and the role the college has played in their success.”

Nominees must be former MCC students who have completed a minimum of three credit hours, achieved success of an exceptional nature within their fields or professions, and have made a positive impact on the community through leadership and/or volunteering.

To be further considered for the award, candidates must agree to accept the award at the Distinguished Alumni Reception and agree to return to campus at least once within the year to be a guest speaker and/or participate in a student engagement activity.

The deadline for nomination forms is midnight March 4. Each nomination form must be accompanied by a current resume of the candidate.

Self-nominations are allowed, but in such cases, at least one letter of reference must be submitted. If available, MCC welcomes the additional submissions of up to three letters of recommendation.
