Submitted by Billie Owens on May 19, 2014 - 12:20pm
The Genesee Community College Foundation invites nominations for its Alumni Hall of Fame, which recognizes those alumni who have achieved outstanding success and made a lasting impact on their community. The Foundation will induct the next class of nominees in March 2015.
"We encourage those who know outstanding graduates to nominate them now," Jackie Christenson, GCC's Alumni coordinator said. "We know there are lots of deserving graduates out there, and we hope people will begin now to submit nominations."
Nomination forms can be downloaded from GCC's Alumni Web site (www.genesee.edu/alumni/HallofFame/) and e-mailed or sent to the College's Alumni office.
GCC introduced the Alumni Hall of Fame in 2007. Over eight years, the College has recognized 28 outstanding graduates in a variety of fields, from law enforcement to economic development.
"The success of these graduates serves as an inspiration to all of us here at the College and the community at large," Christenson said. "We are eager to honor more of GCC's best and brightest."
The criteria for nominating an individual to the Alumni Hall of Fame are based on the individual's contributions to his or her profession, distinguished service to the community and/or service to Genesee Community College. Nominees must be well-established in their professional lives, completing their GCC degree at least 10 years prior to nomination.
Nominations may be submitted by the nominee or by friends, family, work associates or other colleagues who are familiar with the nominee. A selection committee will choose honorees. New inductees will be honored at a reception, and their photo and a short biography will be featured on a plaque displayed in the Alumni Hall of Fame, located on the second floor of the Conable Technology Building.
