2021 SVCC Alumni Awards

The Sauk Valley College Foundation is seeking nominations for the 2021 Alumni Awards. Many exceptional people attend Sauk and we recognize these stars among our alumni each year. The awards include the Distinguished Alumni, Alumni Achievement and Future Alumni Awards.

The Distinguished Alumni Award
Bestowed in recognition of a particular achievement of noteworthy value, a series of such achievements or a career of noteworthy accomplishments that bring honor to the College.

The Alumni Achievement Award
Bestowed in recognition of alumni 35 years and younger whose achievements, public service and/or volunteer activities bring honor to the College.

Future Alumni Award
Bestowed to current Sauk Valley Community College students who seek out opportunities for personal and educational growth; endeavor to better their communities and college through participation in civic and college organizations, clubs or initiatives; and who reflect SVCC’s vision to respect the worth and dignity of all people; stand for integrity and fairness; and encourage responsibility, accountability, and persistence. While nominators may include academic achievements of note, final decisions will not be weighted toward academic considerations.

A Sauk alum is anyone who has completed a degree, certificate or a minimum of 24 semester hours. Those chosen for this award have done exceptional work and shown exemplary dedication to their communities. Past recipients include such notable alumni as Frank Selmi ’73, Agriculture and Kim Gaffey ’76, Nursing.

While the foundation accepts nominations year round, the deadline for 2021 nominees is Monday, February 22.
