President's Distinguished Alumni Award

Established in 2010, the President’s Distinguished Alumni Award has been presented annually to graduates of Atlantic Cape that have differentiated themselves through professional, public or community-based accomplishments.  Nominations are reviewed by the Atlantic Cape Alumni Advisory Committee and their recommendations for two potential recipients are submitted to the college president for consideration. 

Recipients of the President's Distinguished Alumni Award are honored during a special dinner hosted by Careme's Restaurant on the Mays Landing Campus.  Recipients are also recognized at the college's commencement ceremony.

To submit a nomination for an Atlantic Cape graduate, please complete and submit the President's Distinguished Alumni Nomination Form by January 26, 2018.  When nominating graduates, please note that recipients of the award must be present at the May 17, 2018 Commencement Ceremonies and will be asked to commit to public appearances on behalf of Atlantic Cape along with having their image used in publications.
