Upcoming Honors

Northwest is excited to announce four new awards that honor individuals and corporations who have made an impact on the institution. We invite you to read over each award description and if someone you know comes to mind, nominate them for one of these prestigious awards! If you have any questions, feel free to contact Patti Gordon at

The Northwest Mississippi Community College Young Alumni Professional Achievement Award is presented to an alumnus/a, age 40 or under at the time of nomination.  This award is based upon a significant record of career achievement and a promise for future professional success.  Recipients have been acknowledged by their peers for their outstanding work in their chosen field of endeavor. 

The Alumni Professional Achievement Award recognizes Northwest alumni who have distinguished themselves through  their professional accomplishments, and whose contributions honor the legacy of excellence at Northwest Mississippi Community College.  The candidate must demonstrate leadership and depth in their chosen professional activities, exemplary achievements, and demonstrated commitment and goodwill toward Northwest. 

The Award for Outstanding Corporation honors a corporation or a corporate foundation that demonstrates outstanding commitment to Northwest and encourages others to take leadership roles toward college involvement.

The Spirit of Northwest Award honors an individual that is NOT an alumnus of Northwest Mississippi Community College that has made an outstanding contribution to the college.
