The deadline for submitting nominees for the Owens Campus Distinguished Alumni Award has been extended until Saturday, June 1. The award will be presented at the annual Walk of Success Induction Ceremony Sept. 25.
Honorees selected for the award are judged on the basis of their professional and career achievements related to their area of study, service to Delaware Tech and its surrounding communities, leadership activities, reputation among colleagues, academic achievements beyond Delaware Tech and other significant contributions.
Bronze plaques bearing the graduate's name, date of graduation and date of induction are placed in the walkway between the Stephen J. Betze Library and the Carter Partnership Center. Each honoree also receives a plaque.
To be eligible, an individual must be a graduate of an associate degree or diploma program at Delaware Tech’s Owens Campus. Alumni must have graduated at least seven years preceding the nomination and must not be currently employed by Delaware Tech, with the exception of adjunct instructors teaching no more than one noncredit or one credit course at the time of selection.
