The Mt. Vernon Distinguished Alumni Awards serve to honor alumni who have gone above and beyond in their service to the community or made outstanding achievements.
This award honors Mt. Vernon Alumni whose deeds and character exemplify outstanding achievements in their life’s work and/or service to their communities. The annual winners are recognized at the annual Black & Gold Gala.
Mt. Vernon High School has established a long-standing tradition of academic and athletic excellence. Many graduates, who distinguished themselves in the classrooms and/or in athletic or scholastic competitions continued to distinguish themselves after graduation.
It is the purpose of the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame to recognize such individuals who have, through their performance, conduct, and achievement brought credit and honor to themselves and Mt. Vernon High School. Their public example will serve to inspire future graduates to perform and serve in the same spirit.
