CRYSTAL LAKE – The Friends of McHenry County College Foundation seeks nominations for the MCC Distinguished Alumni Award to recognize MCC alumni who are making their communities a better place to live and work.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes the accomplishments of notable McHenry County College alumni who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in their chosen profession and have made a positive impact on their community. 

The award winners will be recognized at the MCC Distinguished Alumni Ceremony at McHenry County College on April 17.

“Many MCC alumni have gone on to have successful careers and continue to make a difference in the community,” said Matt Lemke, Friends of MCC Foundation board of directors president. “This award allows MCC to celebrate their achievements and the role that MCC has played in their successes.”

The criteria for nomination includes: former MCC student who has completed a minimum of three credit hours, achieved success of an exceptional nature within his or her chosen field or profession, and has made a positive impact on his or her community through leadership and/or volunteering.

To be considered for the award, the candidate must agree to accept the award at the MCC Distinguished Alumni Ceremony 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 3.

Each nomination form must be accompanied by a current resume of the candidate.
