About the Santa Ana College Alumni Hall of Fame Achievement Award

Santa Ana College has honored outstanding alumni for over 60 years. The tradition began in 1955 when the first three award recipients were named. Over the years, more than 180 outstanding alumni representing all walks of life have received the Alumni Achievement Award. A formal Alumni Hall of Fame was developed in 1991, with a biennial ceremony to honor the inductees.

The criteria for nomination into the Santa Ana College Alumni Hall of Fame is:

1. Graduation from Santa Ana College or completion of a minimum of 30 units
of coursework;
2. Documents submitted should reflect and directly support the specific distinction and achievement that the candidate has made in his/her professional and/or personal efforts since leaving Santa Ana College. Nominee should have made a significant impact in their education, profession, and/or community.
3. Recipients must be available to attend the awards ceremony and commencement.

Detailed Instructions:

  • It is required that the nominator paint a very descriptive picture of the nominee.
  • Include additional information along with your 1-3 page summary that will assist the selection committee.

Additional supplemental letters and/or other informational pieces (i.e. recommendation letters, articles, press releases, awards, etc.) that support the achievement and distinguished work are highly recommended. Treat this like a Lifetime Achievement Award.

If at any point in the selection process, the committee feels the nomination package contains insufficient information, the nomination will be disqualified and the nominator will be notified.

Nominations must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 24, 2017. You are welcome to nominate more than one individual, but separate forms must be submitted for each nominee.
