VanderCook alumni are dedicated teachers, professionally accomplished, and active citizens in their communities. Many also volunteer their time and talents to create a vibrant alumni organization to build and sustain lifelong relationships between alumni and their alma mater, and among one another. They provide career advice to new graduates, connect through shared interests, and foster loyalty in our students.
As a tribute to the alumni who have served with distinction, excelled in their careers, and brought added notoriety to VanderCook as a result of their successes, the VanderCook Alumni Association recognizes the achievements of its alumni by honoring selected alumni each year.
These awards represent an ongoing effort to learn more about the achievements of our alumni, to share their stories and further demonstrate the value of a VanderCook education, and to engender pride in our alumni network.
