Nominations are being sought by the Lake Michigan College Alumni Association Board of Directors for next year’s Alumni Awards. Since launching in 1986, more than 80 recipients have been honored. The deadline to put in a nomination is February 28. To be considered for the awards, nominees need to have attended Lake Michigan College or its predecessor, Benton Harbor Community College, and have earned at least 30 credit hours through the college. Three awards are up for grabs: The Clarence Beckwith Distinguished Alumni Award, the Alumni Achievement Award, and the Alumni Service Award. The first is named for LMC’s first president and is awarded to someone who has accomplished “significant success” in his or her professional life. The Alumni Achievement Award is for anyone who has graduated from LMC in the past 15 years, while the Alumni Service Award goes to a graduate who has “offered significant personal contributions to the college or community, with community being broadly interpreted as local, the state of Michigan, or the nation.” The awards will be handed out in mid-April at LMC’s 2020 Honors Convocation.
