Central graduates may submit nominations for the "Outstanding Young Alumni Award" using the
form below. Awards are presented each year at Homecoming and Family Weekend.
The Alumni Association of Central Christian College chooses to give the following award in order to proclaim certain character traits, values and accomplishments which exemplify the discovery, development and realization of individual potential as found in Jesus Christ.
These awards are not presented to bring attention to people as much as to the qualities Central Christian College values and the recipients embody. Our purpose in presenting these awards is to challenge each alumnus to greater realization of his/her potential in Christ throughout life.
Alumni awards may be presented in absentia, however recipients will be strongly urged to be present to receive the awards during Homecoming and Family Weekend.
Any alumnus who graduated within the last 15 years is eligible to be nominated. Any alumnus and/or faculty member may submit a nomination to the Office of Alumni Relations to be considered. Nominations will close at the April Alumni Association board meeting, with the selection to be announced at the June Alumni Association board meeting.
Recipient selection will be made by members of the Nominating Committee in consultation with the faculty, staff, and administration of the College, and will be based on the following criteria:
- The nominee models the ideals of Central Christian College and possess Christ-like character.
- The nominee possesses leadership as demonstrated in civic involvement, Christian service/church leadership and/or academic excellence.
- The nominee exhibits a self-sacrificing lifestyle by going above and beyond the call of duty in service to others.
A single award, or as many as five awards, will be presented annually at Homecoming and Family Weekend. A commemorative plaque will be presented to the recipient. Recipient name will also be added to a permanent plaque on display at the Institution.
