Seattle Central Community College is seeking nominations for its 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award. The award will be given to a graduate who exemplifies achievement in his or her particular endeavor in life, including academic, professional, and civic activities.
The 2012 winner was Cheryl Roe, director of programs and development at Skills, Inc., an organization that focuses on helping people with disabilities obtain employment.
Roe was the second person to receive the Distinguished Alumni Award, which was started by Dr. Paul Killpatrick, president of Seattle Central.
“We hope this award will inspire our students to contribute to their community, as well as showcase the success of our graduates,” Dr. Killpatrick said.
Seattle Central has served more than 500,000 students in its 45 years of existence on Capitol Hill.
In addition to the main campus on Capitol Hill, there are specialized campuses in three other locations: Seattle Vocational Institute on Jackson, Seattle Wood Technology Center on South Lane, and Seattle Maritime Academy on Shilshole Ave. N.W. (end)
