King's College seeks nominations for awards honoring graduates who have distinguished themselves through exceptional achievement. Four awards are conferred upon alumni by the president of the College from among nominees solicited from the College community. Members of the faculty, staff and alumni assist the president in the selection process.
The King's College Alumni Award for Outstanding Professional Achievement is awarded to an alumnus or alumna who has distinguished themselves through exceptional achievement.
The Robert J. Ell Alumni Award for Outstanding Service to Alma Mater is conferred upon an alumnus or alumna for extraordinary service, dedication, and commitment to King's College.
The King's College Alumni Award for Service to Society is conferred upon an alumnus or alumna who has distinguished themselves through selfless and caring personal commitment to benefit others.
The Leo Award is conferred upon an alumnus or alumna within 15 years of their graduation who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in their professional or community activities. Named for the King's College mascot, it suggests the energy, pride and sense of purpose which the recipient personifies.
With the exception of the Robert J. Ell Award for Outstanding Service to Alma Mater, alumni awards ordinarily will not be conferred upon current members of the College's faculty and staff, or upon alumni who serve on the board of directors or other advisory council.
