Outstanding Graduate of the Year

About the ACHS Outstanding Graduate Award

Each year ACHS chooses a graduate to represent ACHS in the DEAC Annual Outstanding Graduate program. This program is designed to showcase the significant accomplishments of our graduates and specifically recognize the achievements of distance education students.  

We encourage all graduates to consider applying to be the next ACHS Outstanding Graduate. Faculty and ACHS staff can also nominate graduates for this distinction.
