Distinguished Alumni Awards

The DACC Distinguished Alumni Award has been established for the purpose of honoring an outstanding alumna/alumnus who has made contributions to career and community. Awards are made based on distinction in the nominee’s field and community service. One Alumni from each division and one from the Workforce Development/Training & Continuing Education program are honored annually with consideration for the following:

• Professionalism/achievement in a chosen field
• Volunteerism/service to the community at-large

Distinguished Alumni are chosen by how well they exhibit the qualities of community and professional leadership that are symbolic of the goals and objectives of Doña Ana Community College, such as:

• Enhance and promote excellence in self and others
• Create an environment that inspires others to reach their potential
• Promote continuous improvement and lifelong learning
• Enrich the lives of others through community service
• Acknowledge and cultivate social and cultural diversity
