Distinguished Alumni Award Recipients

The Distinguished Alumni Awards were established in 2007 to recognize the outstanding contributions LFGSM graduates make to business and the community. Awards are presented in two categories: The Distinguished Alumni Award for Professional Achievement and The Distinguished Alumni Award for Service Achievement.
The Distinguished Alumni Award for Professional Achievement

Recognizes an alumnus or alumna whose achievements in the business community have distinguished themselves, benefited the community, and brought credit to LFGSM.


The Distinguished Alumni Award for Service Achievement

Recognizes an alumnus or alumna who has demonstrated outstanding service to the School.

Distinguished Alumni Award Recipients are presented an obelisk at a meeting of the Board of Directors, receive recognition in the Commencement Program, are invited to special events throughout the year and are announced in a press release.
Recipients are chosen from nominations received from other alumni, staff and faculty members, students, and friends of LFGSM. Nominations are due each year by March 1st.
