Norm Rice and Ann Rule are two names not usually linked, but the former mayor of Seattle and the true crime author share a common tie: both are past recipients of the Highline College Distinguished Alumnus Award.
The annual award honors former Highline students who have made notable achievements in their profession or community. Thirty in all have received the award.
Last year’s recipient was Ed Ramos, a 1995 graduate who is now a CPA, working to recruit, retain and advance underrepresented minorities in his profession.
The college is looking for nominees who have made a significant contribution through community service, noteworthy professional achievement and/or recognized leadership.
Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of Highline.
Nominees will be asked to submit a résumé and personal profile questionnaire for review by a campus selection committee. The person selected will be recognized at Highline’s commencement, June 13, 2019.
