New Alumni Hall of Fame Awards Introduced during Homecoming 2019

During Homecoming 2019 at the Alumni Recognition and Donor Awards Banquet, the MMA Alumni Association announced the addition of the Alumni Hall of Fame award series. These new awards include the following categories:

  • Business, Entrepreneurship & Leadership 
  • Arts & Sciences
  • Community & Government Service    
  • Distinguished Military Service
  • Athletics

For these awards, alumni may nominate their fellow MMA brothers using this online form. Awards for the upcoming year are accepted until January 1.

Typically, nominations may only be made for alumni who have completed one full year at MMA and they must be approved by the Alumni Association Board of Directors by a majority vote, but a criteria waiver can be requested by the Alumni Association Board of Directors under special circumstances and approved by MMA’s president.

All nominations must submit to a confidential criminal background check and provide all necessary supporting documentation, such as Military DD214, professional journal articles or internal company recognition.
