NOC seeking distinguished alumni nominations


Northern Oklahoma College is seeking nominations for the 2021 NOC Distinguished Alumni Award.

  Nominations are due Nov. 1, according to Kim Ochoa, alumni relations coordinator.

 Selected honorees will be inducted into the NOC Hall of Fame at the Alumni and Friends Reunion to be held in the Renfro Center, March 27, 2021.  In addition, since the 2020 Alumni and Friends Reunion was cancelled due to COVID-19, we will also be inducting the 2020 inductees, Risha Grant, Jon Kissinger and Marta Sullivan with the 2021 inductees.

  The Distinguished Alumni Award has been established to recognize the achievements of former students whose personal lives, professional achievements and community service exemplify the objectives of NOC. This award is the highest honor that Northern bestows upon an outstanding alumnus/a.
