Alumni Hall of Fame / Award Winners

Each year at Homecoming, the Alumni Association honors distinguished alumni and its most faithful servants at the Alumni Hall of Fame Banquet and the Annual Awards Brunch.

The Alumni Hall of Fame was established to recognize those whose contributions of time and financial means have helped move Southern Miss forward.  The nominee must have graduated fifteen years previously.

The Alumni Association presents six awards during the Annual Awards Brunch on the Saturday of Homecoming.  The awards presented include

•Outstanding Service Award – given to seven (7) alumni based on their service to the University

•Continuous Outstanding Service Award – given to five (5) alumni for their long-term efforts and dedication to Southern Miss

•Special Service Award – given to individuals, not necessarily alumni, who have made a significant, unique contribution to the University, community, or their profession

•Outstanding Young Alumnus / Alumna Award – given to one alum thirty-six years of age or younger who has made contributions of time and effort to the University, community, and their profession

•Meritorious Service Award – given to one alum annually who has continued to give of their time and talents throughout the years to recognize outstanding alumni support, professional achievement, loyalty, and service to the University

•Friend of Southern Miss Award – given to one individual annually who is not an alum, but has contributed greatly to the progress of Southern Miss throughout the years
