Distinguished Alumni

The Lake Havasu High School Distinguished Alumni Selection Committee is requesting nominations for the annual Distinguished Alumni Award. In 1997, Pat Rooney, former principal at Lake Havasu High School, created the Distinguished Alumni Award to honor those students that had made the most of the opportunities presented to them during their years at Lake Havasu High School and continued to become successful in their chosen career field, their community, and their personal life.

Recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award are honored at the high school graduation ceremony, receive a plaque, a gift certificate to dinner at a local restaurant, hotel accommodations for the night of graduation (if needed), and a plaque with their picture will hang in the "Hall of Distinguished Alumni" near the Administrative Offices at Lake Havasu High School. The award is funded solely from donations.

Since 1997, two awards have been presented each year and two more will be added to the Hall of Distinguished Alumni this May. To qualify as a nominee for the Distinguished Alumni Award, nominees must be a graduate of Lake Havasu High School and be out of high school 20 years or more. Nominations must be submitted by the end of February to be chosen for that year, however, nominations are accepted at any time.

If you would like to make a nomination or donation, please contact Christie Locatis at LHHS.
