If you know an alum that should be recognized for their achievements, we want to know about them!
Please nominate a Simpson alum for their achievements so we can recognize and award them in October during Homecoming.
Each recipient of the Alumni Achievement Award must have attained notable achievement or made a lasting contribution within his or her professional, philanthropic or volunteer endeavors. The career field itself is not sufficient to qualify a member of the Alumni Association for the award. Instead, the accomplishments within the career field must meet the standard of being extraordinary. Accomplishments may include, but are not limited to, documented career innovations, professional association memberships (especially elected office or committee involvement), formal honors and awards and/or outstanding business development and achievement.
In addition, each recipient must be a contributing member of his or her community including, but not limited to, volunteer service and activities, organization membership, board and committee participation and support of local and/or national charities.
Finally, each recipient must be an active member of the Simpson College Alumni Association. This includes, but is not limited to, engaging through financial support of the College, attending and participating in College sponsored events and serving the College in various volunteer capacities including student mentorship, participation on College committees, task forces, boards and/or lecturing in classrooms or as a forum speaker.
Recipients of the Alumni Achievement Award must meet the criteria of each of these areas, all while upholding the highest standards and values in all that they do.
