[Monday, January 9, 2017]

The Friends of McHenry County College Foundation seeks nominations for the 2017 MCC Distinguished Alumni Award to recognize MCC alumni who are making their communities a better place to live and work.

The Distinguished Alumnus Award recognizes the accomplishments of notable McHenry County College alumni who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in their chosen profession and have made a positive impact on their community. The award winners will be recognized at the MCC Distinguished Alumni Ceremony at McHenry County College on May 4. 

The Distinguished Alumni Award Recipients in 2016 were: Ryan Blum of Paris, France; John Cain of Ringwood; Wesley Crain of Woodstock; Nick Kachiroubas, Ph.D. of Crystal Lake; Mark Martin of Union, and Nancy Merkling of Woodstock.

“The number of MCC alumni that have launched successful careers and continue to make a positive difference in the community is truly amazing,” said Brian DiBona, interim executive director for the Friends of MCC Foundation. “The Distinguished Alumni award program allows the College to celebrate the achievements of our alumni and the role that MCC has played in their successes.”

The criteria for nomination includes: former MCC student who has completed a minimum of three credit hours, achieved success of an exceptional nature within his or her chosen field or profession, and has made a positive impact on his or her community through leadership and/or volunteering.

The deadline for nomination forms is Friday, March 3 at midnight CST.  Nominees can self-nominate or be nominated by someone else. If self-nominating, at least one letter of reference must be submitted. If available, MCC welcomes the additional submissions of up to three letters of recommendation.
