It is not uncommon to hear about Duhawks doing great things.  In big and small ways, Loras alumni continue to make a difference long after they leave campus.  In an effort to recognize and honor these accomplishments, the National Alumni Board created the Distinguished Alumni Awards in 1988 and the first awards were announced in 1989.
Each year, Loras receives nominations outlining the great things our alumni are doing in five different categories that focus on public and Christian service along with professional achievements and impact made by staff and faculty members. 
Loras is pleased to announce this year’s recipients.
