Gallery of Distinguished Alumni
Established in 1988, the Gallery of Distinguished Alumni holds in high regard outstanding alumni and friends who demonstrate the values upon which Gardner-Webb was founded and who help to shape our local and global communities while serving to inspire current and prospective students. Through this initiative, the University recognizes and honors alumni and friends who have made significant contributions in their field of service and in the communities in which they serve.
The Gallery of Distinguished Alumni inducts up to 12 alums at the Alumni and Friends Recognitions and Awards Banquet, held annually during Homecoming Weekend. In addition to the Distinguished Alumni award, the 12 Gallery inductions include special awards: Junior College Alumnus of the Year Award, Alumnus of the Year Award, Young Alumnus of the Year Award, and the Distinguished Service Award.
