Nominations are still being sought for Waubonsee Community College’s 2015 Distinguished Contributor and Distinguished Alumnus awards. Nominations must be received by Friday, June 26, and should be submitted to Kim Caponi, Waubonsee’s Senior Executive to the President, by emailing kcaponi@waubonsee.edu.   

DISTINGUISHED CONTRIBUTOR AWARD 
The Distinguished Contributor Award annually honors an individual, group of individuals or organizations who have made outstanding contributions or given exemplary support to Waubonsee Community College. The nominee has supported the general operation of the college in either a personal or professional capacity that has contributed to the overall growth and expansion of the college’s mission. The nominee’s commitment has enhanced a program, the operation and/or future development of the college that went beyond the ordinary, and such results would not have occurred without that special effort. The college staff, community residents and officials or community college leaders must also recognize the person as having made an extraordinary commitment to promote the college and its mission. Current employees of Waubonsee Community College are not eligible to receive this award.
