2020 Distinguished Alumni Awards

Previous honorees 

The Northampton Area School district Education Foundation established the Distinguished Alumni Award and Wall of Honor in 2018. The purpose is to help make current Northampton Area School district students, graduates, and the community aware that our school district produces outstanding graduates and role models who have demonstrated leadership and excellence in their professional lives and their commitment to community service. 

A plaque for each Award recipient is installed on the Wall of Honor located in the main lobby of the Northampton Area High School, and the Award recipients are publicly honored at a celebratory event. This year the Distinguished Alumni Award Celebration was held on April 26 at Woodstone Country Club and Lodge and family, friends, co-workers, community members, and school district personnel joined in the festivities to recognize this year's outstanding alumni, and the plaques for this year's group were installed in June.

                                                 *****Posthumous nominations will be accepted.
