Distinguished Alumni awards -- Make a Nomination Today!
Last fall the Southwest High School Foundation awarded its first Distinguished Alumni Awards to alumni for their outstanding contributions to their community, alma mater, or country in their chosen career or community service. In May, the Distinguished Alumni Committee chose this year's awardees. The 2017 Distinguished Alumni are: John Hetland '48, Iric Nathanson '57, Tom Neiman '65, Gene Winstead '68, and Lizz Winstead '79. Please join Southwest in honoring these great alumni on Saturday afternoon, September 9, at 2:00 in the Southwest Commons (Door 1 on 47th Street).
The Foundation encourages alumni to nominate their friends, family, and classmates who are deserving of this award. The Distinguished Alumni Committee, chaired by former Foundation President Nancy Rose Pribyl '81, reviews all nominations and selects the winners. In addition to Nancy Rose Pribyl '81, Committee members include Adam Barrett '00, Kelly Doran '75, Diane Darr '48, Jack Rice '59, Ruth Usem '57, and Southwest Principal Bill Smith. To make a nomination, please click here to print a nomination form and mail it to the Foundation's address: 3414 W. 47th St., Minneapolis, MN 55410. If you would like a nomination form mailed to you, please call Nancy Rose Pribyl at 952.250.9891.
