Now accepting nominations
To honor those graduates who have used their Loveland Schools education to significantly contribute to their chosen vocation or avocation, or to their community, be it local, national or global, to in some way better the loves of others…
The Loveland Schools Foundation is now accepting nominations for its Distinguished Alumni Awards presentation this fall. Any Loveland High School graduate who has excelled in his/her personal or professional life is eligible.
For many years, Loveland Schools have produced outstanding graduates who have had an impact on their communities, society, and the lives of others on a local, national and global level. It is the purpose of the Loveland Schools Foundation to identify these individuals, recognize them and to make current Loveland students, employees of the school district and the Loveland Community as a whole aware of their leadership qualities and their accomplishments.
A maximum of five recipients will be chosen during the selection period. Nominations may be made by a family member, a business associate or community member, Foundation members, corporate Foundation sponsors, faculty, administrators, Loveland Board of Education Members or anyone who is well acquainted with the nominee.
Nominations are accepted for graduates who have chosen various types of career pursuits: the military, the entertainment field, writing, business, medicine, teaching, industry and any other profession in which he/she has made a difference.
To date, 15 graduates have been thus honored: Terry A. McCoy, M.A. M. LeRoy Reynolds, Ed.D., David N. Volkman, M.Ed., M.A., Major General Earl J. Archer, Jr., Mr. James S. Ferguson, Michael B. Shannon, M.D., Ms. Ann Donahue, Mr. Brad Henderson, Captain David Seth Mitchell, Mr. Ron Reynolds, Mr. Johsua I. Smith, Valerie L. Newell, Pete Patterson, Mike Taylor, and Jerry Wood. These distinguished graduates have been honored at a banquet at which they were presented with a plaque listing their accomplishments and a crystal tiger. A duplicate plaque is hung on the “Wall of Fame” located at the front entrance of Loveland High School.
A one-page nominating form must be submitted along with the candidate’s resume and two letters of endorsement stating specific characteristics and reasons for the nomination.
