Distinguished Alumni Award

The Distinguished Alumni Award was established in 1999 to recognize and honor an outstanding alumni each year who made contributions to his/her career, community, and/or Bay College. The Alumni of the Year is recognized at the annual Awards Dinner in April and graduation in May. They are also invited to be a keynote speaker at commencement the following year to capstone their honor.

Nominations are accepted for the Distinguished Alumni Award year round. Potential candidates are reviewed each March by the Alumni Association, and are considered for two years. Current Bay College employees are not eligible for nomination. Submit a nomination for the the Distinguished Alumni Award by completing the Distinguished Alumni Award online nomination form.

Scholarships recipients are determined by the Bay de Noc Community College Financial Aid Office with guidance from the Foundation based on preferences set by the Alumni Board annually.
