Graduates of BCC who go on to exemplify the values of the College are eligible for the Distinguished Alumni Award. In the words of President Thomas A. Isekenegbe, the award “celebrates individuals who have maintained the BCC traditions of discovery, achievement and excellence through their personal accomplishments, professional achievements or humanitarian service.” The Distinguished Alumni each receive a medal on a ribbon with the school colors. Their framed photographs and stories adorn a wall on the first floor of North Hall and Library, where they will be joined by other Distinguished Alumni in years to come.
