Being mindful of rising rates of infections and the significant risks that COVID-19 presents to alumni and friends of all ages, we made the decision to change the in-person Alumni Awards Reception to a virtual recognition on Friday, October 9, 2020 beginning at 5:00 p.m. EST.

We want to be able to recognize the significant achievements of each of our outstanding alumni and as safely as possible. Plans are being finalized and more information and registration will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your patience as we work through the many issues related to the pandemic.

The Hanover College Alumni Achievement Award and Distinguished Young Alumni Award are the highest awards bestowed upon an alumna/us by the College. The award recognizes alumni who have enhanced the reputation of the College by making significant contributions to their community, state and nation through professional service, public service and/or civic activities.
Join the Alumni Leadership Council, Hanover College Trustees, friends, and family at 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, October 9, as we honor the 2020 Alumni Award recipients.
