NORFOLK, Neb. – Nominations are being sought to honor alumni of Northeast Community College.
The Alumni Hall of Success Award is presented to former students, either living or deceased, who have achieved significant success in their profession, exhibited exemplary citizenship qualities, or made significant contributions to their communities and/or community affairs, according to Holly Quinn, director of development services at Northeast and award committee co-chair.
“This is an opportunity for the Board of Governors and the College community to honor individuals for career success, achievement and distinguished service following graduation from Northeast Community College.”
Candidates should have completed a recognized diploma or degree from Northeast (or its predecessor colleges) or completed at least 24 credit hours to be applied toward a degree at another college or university.

They should have demonstrated maturity, with preference given to those who have at least five years of work experience in their occupation or profession.”
Two formal letters of recommendation must accompany the nomination. Nomination forms are available on the Northeast Community College website at northeast.edu/Giving/Achievement-Awards/.
