Since 1949, it has been a tradition for WVU Tech to honor graduates from each college by selecting outstanding alumni for the Alumni of the Year Award. Of over 20,000 graduates, only 114 alumni have been named to this exclusive group. To be selected for this honor, the alumnus must have successfully met a stringent set of criteria.
The Alumnus must have achieved recognition and a successful stature in their chosen profession so that, by example, they exemplify the value of their academic preparation at Tech.
The Alumnus must have a strong commitment to service as found in a record of selfless acts on behalf of family, friends, neighbors and their local community.
The Alumnus must have given their time, talent and treasure to Tech, such that their actions serve as a role model of loyalty and service for all alumni.
