Annually, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary presents a Distinguished Alum Award to two persons who have rendered extraordinary service in their ministries. One award is given to an alum who graduated 25 years ago or less and another is presented to one who graduated more than 25 years ago.
Nominations for the Distinguished Alum Award are taken each year and graduates of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary or its parent bodies Garrett Biblical Institute, Garrett Theological Seminary, Evangelical Theological Seminary, or the Chicago Training School, are eligible to be nominated.
Though nominations for the 2022 Distinguished Alum Award have closed, check back soon for the 2023 Distinguished Alum nomination form!
We were honored to present the 2020 Distinguished Alum awards to Rev. Sue Laurie (G-ETS 1995) and Bishop Bruce Ough (G-ETS 1978) for their remarkable ministries, both within and on the margins of The United Methodist Church.
