Apply for Distinguished Graduate

  Distinguished Graduate program seeks applications  

Are you the next Distinguished Graduate at SAC? The deadline is fast approaching .     

Students must submit applications with an essay of 1,000 to 1,500 words by Thursday, Jan. 31. Each department selects the winning candidate by February 4.

Every program at San Antonio College will select one “distinguished graduate” each year. That student must either be a major in the program or a student in one or more of its classes. Students are required to apply and to complete service projects for the department and college designed to promote graduation.

Eligible students must:

1) Have a minimal GPA of 3.2.

2) Walk the graduation ceremony in May.

3) Demonstrate service to department and college as determined by the distinguished graduates as a group and college leadership working in concert. The service will take place from mid-February through mid-April.

The department’s choice must be:

·      A student who is slated to graduate in May as a major in a department program. If a department has more than one program, they may have that many distinguished graduates;

Or

  An outstanding student (regardless of major) who has taken at least one department course.    

As a Distinguished Graduate, students will be expected to serve as a Graduation Ambassador. Students will also be required to complete a service project to promote graduation. This project should be campus-wide and impact the student’s own department from which they are receiving the honor.

If an honoree does not complete their service commitment, the award will be rescinded by college administration, in consultation with the department chair.

For more information and an application, go to: www.alamo.edu/main.aspx?id=26265  

  

For more information about the Distinguished Graduate Program, students can contact their academic department or The Office of the Vice President for Academics and Student Engagement via email to Rose Gonzales, rgonzales3@alamo.edu or Chaye Pena, apena259@alamo.edu.
