MSSU Alumni Association
Established in 1971, The Outstanding Alumni Award at Missouri Southern is the highest award given out to an alumnus by the Alumni Association for their outstanding achievements they have achieved in their profession, and have made significant contributions to benefit their community, state or nation. Awarded each fall during Homecoming, it recognizes the outstanding professional accomplishments of MSSU's finest graduates.
Candidates are nominated for the Outstanding Alumni award by alumni, friends of the University, family members and faculty and staff of MSSU. Information is gathered from many different sources. The information is evaluated and an initial selection is made by a committee representing alumni and faculty. The Alumni Association Board of Directors approves or makes final selection of those who will receive the award. Candidates must have graduated at least 10 years before selection.
Applications received at the Ralph L. Gray Alumni Center prior to May 31 will be considered for the award.
