People can nominate Parkland alumni for one of three categories:
1) Distinguished Alumni Award (up to two recipients): Awarded to college alumni who have distinguished themselves in both their chosen professions and their communities.
2) One to Watch Award: Awarded to college alumni, 35 years or younger, who have demonstrated exceptional achievement and significant contribution to their professions or communities.
3) Excellence in Education Award: Presented to a current staff or faculty member who has made an extraordinary contribution to teaching and the student experience.
Director of the ACC Parkland campus, Valerie McInnes, says she anticipates some top-notch alumni being nominated,
“I know Parkland campus offers an exceptional college experience for those in the region and has an impressive community of alumni. I look forward to hearing about the challenges and successes of those who will be nominated.”
While getting through the COVID-19 pandemic, the college could not present these awards over the past two years.
