WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Alumni Association is now accepting nominations from the community for awards it will present to outstanding graduates prior to the beginning of the 2024-25 academic year.

PCC Development Officer John Bacon says the alumni group will recognize honorees during Convocation on Aug. 13, just as it did last year. He said the organization is seeking nominations in the following categories: Distinguished Alumni, Outstanding Alumni, Young Alumni, Employee Alumni and Honorary Alumni.

“The purpose of our Alumni Awards is to shine a spotlight on the outstanding work being done by our graduates — professionally and in their communities,” Bacon said. “Convocation gives us a chance to celebrate those accomplishments in front of the instructors and support staff who, in many cases, trained and assisted those amazing Bulldogs when they were students.”

Bacon says the Distinguished Alumnus Award is Pitt’s most prestigious. He said it is presented in recognition of outstanding and uncommon achievement in a profession and/or service to the community, college and/or PCC Alumni Association.

“PCC has produced more than 300,000 alumni since 1961, and we’re proud of what they’ve done to strengthen their communities and the workforce,” Bacon said. “We love hearing about their achievements, celebrating their successes, and sharing their inspirational stories with others.”

Bacon says nomination forms are available on the PCC Foundation website and will be accepted through June 19 at 5 p.m. Descriptions of each award and eligibility requirements are also available within the “PCC Alumni Awards” section of the site.

Completed nomination forms may be submitted to the PCC Alumni Office, which is located in Room 211A of the Eddie & Jo Allison Smith Center for Student Advancement on PCC’s main campus. They can also be returned via mail (PCC Alumni Association, P.O. Drawer 7007, Greenville, N.C. 27835) and email to pccalumni@my.pittcc.edu.
