Each year, Crandall University celebrates and recognizes alumni who have made outstanding contributions to their alma mater, their professions, and their communities by hosting the Distinguished Alumni Award Dinner. These awards recognize alumni for outstanding accomplishments and service, to encourage and challenge other alumni to greater efforts and service, and to raise the profile of Crandall University through the accomplishments of its alumni.
Distinguished Alumni Award recipients are selected from nominations received from the alumni community. The criteria for the nomination selection includes: a demonstrated interest and loyalty to the university, a record of outstanding devoted service to humanity in public and/or church life, a record of meritorious achievement, recognition, and/or success in his/her profession, and a reputation for leadership in his/her profession, organization, or broader endeavors.
For 2021, the recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award were Rev. Kevin and Mrs. Sandra Vincent and Mr. David Phillips (Posthumously).
