Alumni Hall of Distinction

Bluegrass Community and Technical College has established the Alumni Hall of Distinction to honor the extraordinary contributions made by our former students to their professions, communities, families, and the college.  These honorees represent the best of our community and by celebrating them; we honor and recognize the many individuals who have enrolled in BCTC or its predecessor institutions.

When the Alumni Association was active, nine people were recognized as the Outstanding Alumni of the Year for their support of the association and commitment to BCTC.  Four other individuals were inducted as part of the inaugural class and were distinguished by their years of service to their profession, their community, BCTC, and its foundation.

For many, the road to lifetime achievement included study at Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) or one of its preceding institutions. The Alumni Hall of Distinction was created in 2017 to recognize those former students who have achieved outstanding success and made a lasting impact on their community.
