Nominations are sought for new Distinguished Alumni Award

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 by CONTRIBUTED ARTICLE in School

The Northampton Area Konkrete Kids Educational Foundation is currently accepting nominations for the inaugural Distinguished Alumni Award, which will help make current Northampton Area School District students, graduates and the community aware that NASD produces outstanding graduates and role models who have demonstrated leadership and excellence in their professional and personal lives.

A candidate for the Distinguished Alumni Award must have graduated from NAHS at least 15 years prior to being nominated for the award. In addition, a candidate must meet some of the following criteria: a person who has achieved outstanding success in his/her chosen field or profession; a person who has performed substantial community service or other volunteer work; a person who has made a positive impact on others; and a person who has received special recognition or awards. Posthumous nominations will be accepted.

Nomination forms are available at konkretefoundation.org and must be submitted by Dec. 1.

The selected honoree(s) for the Distinguished Alumni Award will have a permanent plaque placed on a newly established Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor in the main lobby of Northampton Area High School, and the honoree(s) will be publicly honored at the Distinguished Alumni Award Celebration scheduled for April 13, 2018.
