(Victorville)– On Saturday, May 15, 2021, the Victor Valley College Foundation will hold its 28th annual Alumni Hall of Fame and Distinguished Service Awards event on the Victor Valley College campus. The Foundation will honor six distinguished award recipients while proceeds raised during the evening will continue to support and promote the importance of education in the community.
Traditionally held in February, the event was previously postponed to adhere to safety guidelines. The “Lakeside Celebration” will follow the reopening of Victor Valley College’s student services on May 10.
This year’s event will follow a similar program to previous Alumni Hall of Fame Awards as the Foundation will recognize Victor Valley College Alumni whose success reflects positively on their alma mater, honors a community servant, highlights an advocate for education and acknowledges a friend of the College. 2021 recipients include Eric Schmidt, Dakota Higgins, Cindy Bostick, Don Brown, Cindie Schmidt and Carl Tate.
“We are so excited to continue the celebration of the Alumni Hall of Fame and Distinguished Service Awards,” says VVC Foundation Board President, Shannon Shannon. “This year’s recipients have made such impactful contributions to our communities and we plan to honor them in a special way.”
This year’s event will take place lakeside and feature various booths hosted by Victor Valley College programs.
“Our College remains undoubtedly grateful for the support we receive from our local community and our partners,” says VVC Foundation Executive Director, Kirsten Acosta. “Because of their generosity, we are able to provide scholarships, campus grants, tutoring opportunities and so much more. We’re excited to showcase our programs this year and hope our community can learn more about what’s offered here at VVC.”
More information on award recipients, Victor Valley College and the Foundation will be shared during the Alumni Hall of Fame and Distinguished Service Awards Celebration Saturday, May 15, 2021, at 5 p.m. at the Victor Valley College campus. In addition to celebrating the recipients, the event will feature curated food pairings and a silent auction. Tickets and sponsorships for the event are available at www.vvcfoundation.com/hof21.
