The Hamilton College Alumni Council has established an award that will honor a College employee.
Presented by the Alumni Council on behalf of the Hamilton College Alumni Association, the purpose of the Distinguished Service Award is to recognize an employee who has substantially contributed to Hamilton through distinguished performance in his or her position and through involvement in student, alumni or other activities in the College community. At the time of selection, the individual will be an active member of Hamilton's faculty, administration, staff, or maintenance and operations.
The Alumni Council each year will act on the nomination put forward by its Nominations Committee. Public recognition of the Distinguished Service Award recipient will take place at an annual ceremony usually held during an Alumni Council Weekend.
