Alumni

Distinguished Alumni Award

Flint Hills Technical College established the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2016 as a way of honoring FHTC alumni achievements, both personal and professional, and the contributions they make in their local communities and society. The FHTC Board of Directors will select up to two nominees each year and selections are announced at the end of April. The inductees will receive a plaque and be identified on the Distinguished Alumni display on FHTC’s main campus.

Selection Criteria

Nominees must have completed a certificate, diploma or degree program from Flint Hills Technical College (or formerly Flint Hills Area Vocational-Technical School). Nominees will be evaluated on the following areas:

  • Civic and community involvement.
  • Professional awards and honors.
  • Other areas that exemplify FHTC’s mission to provide a diverse community of learners with lifelong educational opportunities for personal growth and preparation for professional and civic responsibilities that meet with the needs of society.
