Distinguished Alumni Award
Distinguished Alumni Award

The California Community College Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes and honors the fine men and women whose attendance at a California community college helped them achieve their educational and professional goals and serve their communities. The League has recognized the distinguished alumni of California’s community colleges since 1964. To view the completed distinguished alumni list, click here.

This year, three nominees will be selected as the Community College League’s 2021 Distinguished Alumnus/Alumnae. The awards will be presented at the League’s Annual Convention in November. This award celebrates excellence and is an inspiring experience for all involved. The success of the program is dependent on recipient attendance and if selected, we ask that the sponsoring districts arrange their alumnus/alumnae’s attendance at the Convention.
