Honored Alumni & Friends

We have the good fortune to be able to recognize individuals, both alumni and friends, for the significant contributions they provide to the college and the Foundation. Each year we honor individuals in three categories:

Outstanding Tiger Alumni Award

The Outstanding Tiger Alumni Award was established to honor, promote, and recognize alumni who have brought recognition and pride to the college community through their achievements in their chosen profession or in service to their community. It is also used to honor those that have made unusual contributions to the college, demonstrating outstanding leadership and promoting a positive collegiate atmosphere.

Each year, a committee chooses one or more alumni to receive the Outstanding Tiger Alumni Award based on the following criteria:

  • Success in chosen career
  • Professional service
  • Community service
  • Nominee must be alumni of Cowley College
