VVC Foundation seeks nominations for annual awards

Do you know a former student of Victor Valley College who has achieved success in their career or made a difference for their community? How about a community leader whose impact on the Victor Valley has improved the quality of life or changed education for the better? Now is the time to nominate them for one of the community’s most prestigious awards. The Victor Valley College Foundation will accept nominations for its annual Alumni Hall of Fame & Distinguished Service Awards through September 15, 2016.

Nominations for three specific categories of awards are currently open:

Alumni Hall of Fame – honors a previous student who has completed their course of study and has achieved success in their career field.  The recipient of this award will have developed a reputation that reflects positively on Victor Valley College.

Distinguished Community Service – honors an individual who has made or is making a positive impact on communities within the Victor Valley Community College District.  The impact may be based on a single activity or in recognition of years of service. 

Distinguished Education Service – honors an individual whose work, paid or volunteer, is improving or has improved educational opportunities for students within the Victor Valley Community College District.

Nominations in these categories are reviewed by a panel of community leaders from across the region. Awards are made, based on the panel’s recommendations, by the Victor Valley College Foundation Board of Directors. Winners will be notified in November and publicly recognized in a formal celebration at the Hilton Garden Inn on February 25, 2017.

A complete list of winners from previous years and the official nomination form for the 2017 awards are available on the Foundation’s website, www.vvcfoundation.com.
