  • Process

    Call for Nominations
    Each year the St. Michael’s Alumni Association Board recognizes an alumni who has made notable contributions to the school and/or his or her community. Do you know a St. Michael’s alumnus/a who deserves an award for professional achievement and service to society? Please review the criteria and eligibility for the award and make your nomination.

    The Process
    The St. Michael’s Catholic Academy Alumni Board accepts nominations for the awards from all members of the St. Michael’s community. A sub-committee of the Governing Board reviews the materials submitted on each candidate and selects the person deemed most deserving of recognition.

    All deliberations are kept confidential. The person chosen as Alum of the Year is honored each year at the Lifetime Crusader Alumnus of the Year Award Presentation and Dinner as well as at Homecoming.

    Confidentiality
    Please do not inform candidates that they are under consideration since only one person is chosen each year from among the many worthy individuals. Please read each of the award description carefully before making your recommendations. A candidate may be nominated more than one year if he or she has not been awarded Alum of the Year previously.
