Established in 2009, the annual Alumni of the Year award is an opportunity for the WC community—both past and present—to collectively celebrate the mission of the school being lived out among its 2,500 graduates. Nominations are open year-round from the WC community at-large.
A committee representing a cross-section of the school selects the recipient based on the following criteria:
- Graduate of WC;
- Warrior for Christ;
- Ambassador (positive spokesperson) for WC; and
- Difference-maker in his/her profession, community, or ministry.
The recipient is announced each May in tandem with commencement exercises. Annual nominations close on February 15.
