The prestigious Clemson Alumni Distinguished Service Award is based on three main criteria: personal and professional accomplishments; dedication and service to Clemson University; and devotion to community and public service. Members of the Clemson family nominate potential honorees, who are then selected by the Clemson Alumni Association as outstanding alumni, public servants and examples to others.

“The Distinguished Service Award allows us to take time to recognize a few truly remarkable members of the Clemson family,” said Clemson University President James P. Clements. “These five honorees have achieved incredible success in their professional careers, through community service, and in their commitment to Clemson University. We are proud of these alumni and the example of service they set for all of us.”

The Clemson Alumni Association, an open-membership, nonprofit organization since its inception in 1896, connects members of the more than 150,000-strong Clemson family, inspiring pride, celebrating achievement, providing service and strengthening relationships with Clemson University and with each other. For more information, visit
