Alumni Awards

Alumni Association Awards
Our association is pleased to present two awards to alumni of Houston Baptist University. Each year we select a Distinguished Alumnus and a Meritorious Service Alumnus. The recipients are recognized at the Walk of Honor Ceremony at Homecoming and at the Spirit of Excellence Dinner. The Awards Committee accepts nominations throughout the year and makes their selections by June 30 of each year. Using the links below, you may review a list of past recipients and submit a nominee for one or both awards. We encourage you to use the online nomination form to recommend a deserving candidate.

Following is the criteria for each award:
Distinguished Alumnus Award:
This award is to be given to alumni who have made a distinctive contribution in their profession. They must have consistently exemplified the standards upon which the University is founded. In no way is the award to be given on the basis of financial contribution to the University. 

Meritorious Service Alumnus Award:
This award will be presented to alumni who have made significant, sustained contributions of time, energy and creativity toward the advancement of the University. They must show continuing interest and exemplify standards upon which Houston Baptist University is founded.

Hallmark Award:
Presented to members of the HBU faculty or staff who have shown significant support of the Alumni Association. Recipients are designated "Honorary Alumnus"
