Nominations open for OCAA annual Alumni Awards
Okanagan College Media Release

The Okanagan College Alumni Association (OCAA) is now accepting nominations for the 2015 Distinguished Alumni Award and Young Alumni Award. 
 

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes alumni of Okanagan College and Okanagan University College for their demonstration of excellence in the areas of leadership, the environment, business or industry, public or community service, the arts, and/ or support for Okanagan College. The Young Alumni Award celebrates the outstanding contributions of an alumna or alumnus who is under the age of 35.  

"Reviewing nominations for the alumni awards is always one of the highlights of our year,” says Kara Kazimer, President of the OCAA Board of Directors. “The achievements of Okanagan College and OUC alumni are as inspiring, diverse and far-reaching as the alumni themselves.

“Hearing about the impact our alumni are having in their communities is inspiring for us at OCAA, but even more so for current students and recent graduates of the College who are following in their footsteps. These awards are an opportunity to share our alumni’s stories and celebrate them for their accomplishments.” 

All members of the Okanagan College Alumni Association are eligible to be nominated for the distinguished or young alumni awards. Nominees must have completed a certificate, diploma, degree, apprenticeship program or have completed a minimum of 30 academic credits at Okanagan College or OUC. 

The deadline for nominations is midnight on Feb. 28. Nominations may be made by completing an online form available at: www.okanagan.bc.ca/DAA-YAA

Lane Shupe, Certified Dental Assistant (1981), was the recipient of last year’s Distinguished Alumni Award. Donnie Ungaro, Bachelor of Business Administration (2003) was honoured with the 2014 Young Alumni Award. Profiles of previous years’ recipients can be found at alumni.okanagan.bc.ca/alumni-awards

The 2015 Distinguished Alumni Award and Young Alumni Award will be selected by the Alumni Association Board of Directors and presented at a reception later this year.
