Award Information

The Distinguished Alumni of the Year award is presented to an alumnus who has made worthy contributions in many areas of life, particularly in the areas of the “Three C’s,” which are college, church, and community. This award is intended to recognize alumni who exemplify the values King University upholds: Christian faith, service, career, and scholarship. 


King is blessed to have numerous families who have sent more than one student to King. Established in 2009, the Legacy Award recognizes their commitment to King and their lifetime of service, achievement, and commitment to King’s mission and vision. 

The Young Alumni Achievement Award recognizes those 40 or younger who have made outstanding professional contributions in their field and shown a strong commitment to serving others. 

The Volunteer of the Year Award honors alumni who have committed a significant portion of their time and talents to further the mission of King. An institution the size of King would not be able to function without the faithful efforts of its volunteers.

The Christian Service Award is our newest alumni award, established in 2020. It honors alumni of King who have dedicated their lives in full-time service to fulfill the commission of Jesus Christ, as found in the gospels.

Please check the award you wish to make a nomination for and answer the proceeding questions for that award, followed by the nominee and nominator information.
