Distinguished Alumni Award

Distinguished Alumni Award

2017 marked the ninth year that the Alumni Foundation presented its Distinguished Alumni Award to an East Rochester graduate who has made significant and ongoing contributions to the children and village of East Rochester, their community, country or chosen profession. The goal of this award is twofold. First, the Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes former East Rochester graduates for noteworthy lifetime accomplishments and contributions. Additionally, the award offers a powerful opportunity to underscore the potential which exists for kids who are lucky enough to grow up and be educated in East Rochester, N.Y.

This award is presented at the East Rochester Alumni Foundation's Sam Urzetta Alumni Classic Golf Tournament, which is held each year on the first Friday of August.

Below is a list of the award recipients:

Again this year, the Alumni Foundation's Board of Directors is encouraging East Rochester alumni to recommend individuals for its consideration. Recommendations are made by printing the DAA nomination form, which is found on the Foundation's website http://www.erschools.org/files/1511043/daa%20nomination%20form.pdf and returning the completed document to the East Rochester District Office at 222 Woodbine Ave. Nominations must be received by the first Friday in April (April 6, 2018).
