Hall of distinction


Since 1983, Broward College has recognized alumni who have made outstanding contributions in professional, civic, public and philanthropic arenas and have demonstrated how their lives have been enriched by their educational experiences at their alma mater.

Nominations are reviewed carefully by a committee comprised of past recipients and college representatives. Through the Broward College Hall of Distinction we honor alumni whose accomplishments, character and commitment to their community are deemed meritorious.
