The Okanagan College Alumni Association is accepting nominations for the 2016 Distinguished Alumni Award and Young Alumni Award.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes alumni of Okanagan College and Okanagan University College for their demonstration of excellence in the areas of leadership, the environment, business or industry, public or community service, the arts, and/or support for Okanagan College. The Young Alumni Award celebrates the outstanding contributions of an alumna or alumnus who is under the age of 35.

“Okanagan College and OUC alumni are doing remarkable things, and these awards are a wonderful opportunity each year to recognize the impact they are having in our surrounding communities and far beyond,” said Kara Kazimer, OCAA president.

All members of the Okanagan College Alumni Association are eligible to be nominated for the distinguished or young alumni awards. Nominees must have completed a certificate, diploma, degree, apprenticeship program or have completed a minimum of 30 academic credits at Okanagan College or OUC.
