Mid-Atlantic Christian University wishes to recognize and honor alumni of extraordinary achievement, distinguished service, or exemplary character by presenting them the award “Distinguished Alumnus” or “Distinguished Alumna.”
This award is given to recognize superior leadership or achievement, to acknowledge a selfless spirit of service, to express appreciation for exceptional generosity, or to publicly identify and recognize worthy role models. It is the third highest honor the university bestows, the first being an Honorary Doctorate Degree and the second being the Lighthouse Award.
Those chosen as distinguished alumni, although chosen for any of the reasons listed above, exemplify Christ-like characteristics of leadership and service. They have been determined to be living role models, working tirelessly for the good of others. The university uses the bestowing of such an award to demonstrate and reinforce the importance of taking an active role in serving the Kingdom of God.
Any alumnus/a may nominate an alumnus/s who has completed at least 32 credit hours at MACU. Nominations are due by either January 1 or July 1 to qualify for consideration for bi-yearly presentation dates. Please note that nomination does not guarantee selection and that the entire nomination process is confidential.
