Distinguished Alumni Award

Nominate a Parish Alumna/us

The annual Distinguished Alumni Award has been created in an effort to recognize graduates of Parish Episcopal School or Parish Day School who have succeeded in their personal and professional lives. The Alumni candidate will have distinguished themselves by virtue of their contributions to the community as well as to their careers and to Parish.

To nominate a deserving alumna/us for the annual Distinguished Alumni Award, complete and submit the online nomination form below. All members of the Parish community, including faculty/staff, can submit nominations.

Nominations should be submitted by March 1 to be considered for this academic year. The Distinguished Alumni Award recipient will be announced during the Founders' Dinner in April, and nominees not selected will remain on the Distinguished Alumni Award slate for the following year. 

The Award recipient will also be recognized with the installation of an alumni panel in the Great Hall on the Midway Campus.

About the Distinguished Alumni Award

On an annual basis, the Parish Alumni Association solicits nominations for our Distinguished Alumni Award. The recipient will be revealed and celebrated at the annual Founders' Dinner in the spring.

The Alumni candidate will have distinguished themselves by their contributions to Parish, their community, as well as to their careers. The goal of this annual award is to introduce positive alumni role models to the Parish Episcopal School community and highlight their achievements to students and other alumni.

The Alumni Board and slating committee (Head of School, Assistant Head of School, and Head of Upper School) reserves the right to request additional information about nominees from the person nominating.
