The Distinguished Service Award
This prestigious award is the highest honor that the Association can bestow upon an alumnus or alumna, and is given to those former students who have not only devoted their life to professionalism and public service but who have also demonstrated a lifelong dedication to Clemson University.
The Distinguished Service Award is based upon three main criteria – dedication and service to Clemson University; personal and professional accomplishments; and devotion to one’s community and public service.
Each year, the Clemson Young Alumni Council recognizes ten outstanding individuals for their impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors.
The honor is given to those individuals who exemplify Clemson University’s core values of honesty, integrity, and respect.
