Distinguished Graduate Award

The USAO Alumni Association Distinguished Graduate Award has been awarded to select graduates since 1981. Only honor graduates are considered for this prestigious award. The award recipient is determined by a committee of alumni and faculty.

This list of Distinguished Graduates is resulting from a 2008 summer research project by USAO student Laura Haithcock. In her research, Haithcock used the college’s archive to document award recipients. Please note that we do not have a complete listing and would appreciate assistance in providing the names of recipients during certain years.

Please feel free to contact the Alumni Development office at (405) 574-1320 or by email with questions or additional information.
