The Patrick Henry Community College Foundation is seeking nominations for PHCC graduates to be named “Distinguished Alumni” during the ninth annual awards dinner. The deadline to make a nomination is Feb. 27.

To be considered, nominees must have graduated with a degree or certificate or taken a minimum of 24 credit hours from PHCC. They must have demonstrated success within their chosen career or field of expertise, given significant community-based services, and be able to attend the awards ceremony, slated for May 8.
