Gallery of Distinguished Alumni

Do you know of a Gardner-Webb Alum who lives, works, and serves in such a way that sets him or her apart from the crowd? If so, we would like to know. We recommend that you nominate this person for recognition in the Gallery of Distinguished Alumni.

Each year, leading up to Homecoming, we accept and review nominations for the Gallery. Inductees are selected based on their accomplishments in one or more of the following areas: Career Distinction, Service to Society, Involvement and Support for Gardner-Webb’s advancement, and Integrity and Character. The selection committee, made up of staff and members of the Alumni Advisory board, will award induction to six alumni. One of those inductees will receive the additional honor of being selected as Alumnus/a of the Year.

Official recognition of our inductees takes place on Homecoming Day. Alumni Relations hosts a Gallery of Distinguished Alumni Brunch Reception that day and then recognizes the inductees during halftime at the Homecoming Football game. Inductees are notified well in advance so that travel arrangements may be made.
