Distinguished Alumni - Foundation Day

Bridging the Generations

Since 2002, the Wyoming School Foundation has hosted the Distinguished Alumni Award and Foundation Day. This celebration allows current students to see the impact that quality education can have their lives. 

On Foundation Day, an alumnus who has made a  profound impact in the world is invited to speak to high school students and share how his or her Wyoming education provided a foundation for success. The award recognizes graduates who have gained unique distinction through success in one or more of the following areas: 

  • Distinguished professional achievement and life experiences
  • Outstanding service to other organizations
  • History of advancing the potential of others
  • Serve and support to Wyoming Schools

Please help us continue this tradition by nominating a Wyoming graduate for the next Distinguished Alumni Award.
