Every year since 2005, Minnesota State College Southeast has recognized outstanding graduates at its commencement ceremonies in Red Wing and Winona. Nominations are now open for the 2018 Outstanding Alumni Awards. Two awards are given each year, one for a Winona alumni and one for a Red Wing alumni.
"The Outstanding Alumni Awards recognize our graduates for personal and professional success. We want to acknowledge their excellence," said Casie Johnson, associate foundation director of MSC Southeast. "We also want to honor their contributions to the community."
Last year's recipients were Mary Johnson in Winona and Brian and Brenda Stewart in Red Wing. Nominations for the 2018 awards will be accepted until March 1, 2018. Anyone is welcome to make a nomination. To download a nomination form, go to www.southeastmn.edu/alumniaward.
