Outstanding Alumnus

Each year at Homecoming, the Alumni Association recognizes one or more graduates who have been nominated to receive the Outstanding Alumnus Award. Graduates of the Academy who have distinguished themselves in the Maritime Field, the Armed Forces of the United States, in their chosen profession or for outstanding public service will be eligible to be nominated and to receive the award.

Nominations must be received in writing by the Alumni Office no later than June 30th of the calendar year. The Committee presents its report to the full Board at its summer meeting, at which time the Board will act upon the recommendation of the committee. There is no requirement that an award be given every year, and there is also no limit on the number of awards that can be made.
