Outstanding Alumni Award

HMC's Alumni Association takes pride in recognizing outstanding alumni who have made significant contributions to humanity and society in areas of community service, global contribution, and science and technology.

To qualify, alumni contributions should demonstrate a high level of sustained commitment and involve personal sacrifice. The size of the group affected is not relevant, but the contribution must make a positive impact on humanity or society reaching an organization, community or individual. The nominee may already have been recognized by an independent organization or received other honors or awards.
