WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Alumni Association is seeking nominations for awards it will present to five outstanding graduates prior to the start of 2023-24 classes.
PCC Development Officer John Bacon says the association is trying something new with its awards program this year and will distribute the honors during Convocation on Aug. 15, rather than the spring. He said the organization is seeking nominations in the following categories: Distinguished Alumni, Outstanding Alumni, Young Alumni, Employee Alumni and Honorary Alumni.
“The purpose of our Alumni Awards Ceremony is to shine a spotlight on the outstanding work being done by our graduates — professionally and in their communities,” Bacon said. “Convocation gives us a chance to celebrate those accomplishments in front of the instructors and support staff who, in many cases, trained and assisted those amazing Bulldogs when they were students.”
Bacon says the Distinguished Alumnus Award is Pitt’s most prestigious. He said it is presented in recognition of outstanding and uncommon achievement in a profession and/or service to the community, college and/or PCC Alumni Association.
“PCC has produced more than 300,000 alumni since 1965, and we’re proud of what they’ve done to strengthen their communities and the workforce,” Bacon said. “We love hearing about their achievements, celebrating their successes, and sharing their inspirational stories with others.”
Bacon said nomination forms are available on the PCC Foundation website and would be accepted through June 30 at 1 p.m. Descriptions of each award and eligibility requirements are also available on the site.
Completed nomination forms may be submitted to the PCC Alumni Office, which is located in Room 211A of the Eddie & Jo Allison Smith Center for Student Advancement on PCC’s main campus. They can also be returned via mail (PCC Alumni Association, P.O. Drawer 7007, Greenville, N.C. 27835) and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
