Elon Alumni Association

School of Communications Distinguished Alumni Award

The School of Communications each year honors alumni who have made significant contributions to their profession and brought honor to the school and the university. Recipients are selected by faculty members and invited to campus for a ceremony in their honor and to share their wisdom with current Elon students.

The inaugural School of Communications Distinguished Alumni Awards were presented in spring 2012.
