WC seeking alumni nominations


Weatherford Democrat

Weatherford College is accepting nominations for two prestigious honors: the Alumnus of the Year Award and Distinguished Alumnus awards. 

The awards will be presented at the Alumni Awards Luncheon on April 25.

WC’s Alumnus of the Year Award was established in 1967 and the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1994. A list of past winners is available online at www.wc.edu/alumni/alumni-awards.

Two committees, made up of alumni leaders and appointed by college President Dr. Kevin Eaton, will gather to make the selections.

Individuals will be selected for each award based on the following criteria:

• A former student of Weatherford College in which WC was a significant part of his/her educational experience.

• Recognized in his/her particular field for outstanding performance in that area.

• Made contributions to society through volunteer, religious or charitable organizations.

• Has demonstrated a sense of loyalty to WC in years since attending the college through any actions deemed appropriate by the selection committees

Anyone may nominate individuals for either award. Nominations are due to the Institutional Advancement Office by 4 p.m. on Feb. 14. Nomination forms are available on the college’s website at www.wc.edu/alumni/association-forms. Individuals can email nominations to bbaker@wc.edu or mail to the WC Institutional Advancement Office, 225 College Park Drive, Weatherford, TX 76086.
