Highline College seeking distinguished alumni for annual award


Highline College is seeking nominations for the 2015 Distinguished Alumnus Award, which honors former students who have made notable achievements in their profession or community.

Highline began the award in 1990 with Norm Rice, former Mayor of Seattle, chosen as the first recipient. Past recipients have included Junki Yoshida, Founder and CEO of the Yoshida Food Group; Joan Enticknap, President and COO of Homestreet Bank; and Highline’s own Dr. T.M. Sell.

Eligible nominees are former students who attended Highline prior to the 2010–2011 academic year and have made a significant contribution through community service, noteworthy professional achievement and/or recognized leadership.

Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, students, friends of Highline, or any alum. Nominees will be asked to submit a resume and personal profile questionnaire for review by a campus selection committee. The person selected will be recognized at commencement exercises on June 11, 2015.

Nomination forms are available online at alumni.highline.edu/distinguished/nominate.php.
