Awards of Distinction
2020 Award of Distinction Nominations
The Richard Bland College Foundation encourages nominations for 2019 Awards of Distinction recognition. The three categories are listed below. Nominations close March 30, 2020.
- The Distinguished Alumni Award – Each year we will recognize one to three alumni with this award. It is the highest and most prestigious honor that Richard Bland College can bestow upon its alumni. The purpose of recognizing distinguished alumni is to promote the public image of Richard Bland College by highlighting the achievements of successful alumni, to engage alumni for future service and giving opportunities, to encourage other alumni to become more active in support of RBC, and to provide students with role models of success.
- Richard Bland Award – This award will also be awarded annually and will recognize the commendable service of one person to Richard Bland College. We chose to use the namesake of Richard Bland because of the example of service in his many terms in the House of Burgesses, and as a delegate to the Continental Congress. Each year there are any number of faculty, staff, friends, alumni, business partners, etc. who unselfishly give of their time and energies for the betterment of Richard Bland College.
- Young Alumni Award – The purpose of this award is to inspire and engage young alumni to future service at Richard Bland College. One award will be given to an individual that attended and completed at least one semester at Richard Bland College in the past ten years.
