The recognition of Distinguished Alumni was created to honor those Brescia University graduates who exemplify in their lives the elements that comprise The Brescia Difference: Respect for the Sacred, Devotion to Learning, Commitment to Growth in Virtue, and Promotion of Servant Leadership.
This prestigious annual award is the only one that the University bestows upon its alumni. All other alumni awards originate with the Alumni Association.
Since the award’s inception in 2000, Brescia University has bestowed this recognition on three to six alumni a year. The Distinguished Alumni represent an elite group of individuals selected because of the breadth and scope of their life’s work and the magnitude of their impact on the regional, national, and perhaps international scene. Their examples of service and leadership distinguish them among their peers and demonstrate that they are true stars of Brescia University.
