Distinguished Alumni

The Distinguished Alumnus Award was established by the Southeastern Community College Alumni Association to recognize and honor an alumna/us of SCC or its predecessor colleges, Burlington Junior College, Burlington Community College, and Keokuk Community College, who has achieved substantial public recognition for their accomplishments or success. Each individual selected is honored at a 5:00 PM reception held just prior to commencement.

Distinguished Alumni Scholarships

Every year the SCCAA awards Distinguished Alumni Scholarships worth $1,000 each to graduating SCC students who are transferring to continue their education after SCC.

Distinguished Alumni are honored annually for their outstanding contributions to their communities and professions. Nominations are due annually August 1.

Nominate an Alum

Nominations are accepted year round. Those received by August 1 are considered at the annual meeting of the SCC Alumni Association Board in October. Nominations are held for five years; after five years, a nomination is eligible for renomination.
