Centre College will recognize four graduates for their accomplishments and contributions by naming them Distinguished Alumni and Distinguished Young Alumni at its annual recognition ceremony, as part of the Homecoming 2019 campus festivities. The College will also induct five alumni into Centre’s Athletic Hall of Fame. The ceremony will be held on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 11:30 a.m. in Weisiger Theatre in the College’s Norton Center for the Arts.
In 1963, Centre’s Alumni Association established the Distinguished Alumni Award for the purpose of honoring alumni who have given outstanding service to the College and/or to humankind.
Recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award will be James C. Claypool ’60, Frank H. Edelen ’66 and Clarence R. Wyatt ’78.
The Alumni Association presented its first Distinguished Young Alumni Award in 1993. The award recognizes young alumni for their professional achievements, civic accomplishments and/or service to Centre, and is awarded to alumni who have graduated within the last 15 years.
This year’s recipient of the Distinguished Young Alumni Award is John Warren Robey ’05.
In 1992, the Centre Athletic Hall of Fame was established with an inaugural class of 13 individual inductees. Members are installed in the hall of fame each fall during Homecoming.
This year, Centre’s associate head women’s soccer coach Jessica Chisley ’04, Gregory S. Lawson ’89, coaching pair Eric Mount and Milton Scarborough, and Adam Clark ’07 will be inducted into Centre’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
