TVSC Seeks Nominations for 2011 Distinguished Alumni

Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation is seeking nominations for the 2011 Distinguished Alumni.

This past September 17, the inaugural ten Valley Distinguished Alumni spent the day with students at Tippecanoe Valley High School, sharing life experiences and career

advice in small groups and around the lunch table. The speakers came from each decade in Valley's history, and from as far as Colorado, Texas, and North Carolina, as well as those who have built careers and communities in Kosciusko and Fulton counties. They included a biochemist, a pilot, an attorney, a professor, two doctors, and two decorated Marines. They have refereed state finals, lived in Morocco and Ecuador, and worked in the White House. Who were they? Find out here.

TVHS Distinguished Alumni are graduates of Tippecanoe Valley High School who have led successful lives while making substantial contributions to their chosen field of work or have provided outstanding service to their community, state, or country. The inaugural group was selected by a committee comprised of Valley administrators and alumni from each decade, from among candidates nominated by the community. Individuals selected as TVHS Distinguished Alumni agree to share their experiences with current TVHS students and serve as mentors. Congratulations and thanks to the first group, for making the time to share their experiences with the current students.

The second class of Distinguished Alumni will be selected in June and will spend Friday, September 23, 2011 with Valley students. Nominations may be submitted online here and are due by May 1. Questions about may be directed to TVHS Principal Kirk Doehrmann at 574-353-7031 or Superintendent Brett Boggs at 574-353-7741.
