2020 Distinguished Graduates

Each year, the academic programs at San Antonio College recognize one outstanding graduate. Students receive special recognition at the commencement ceremony by wearing a cord to signify their status. A special mark on the diploma also notates this prestigious honor. Distinguished graduates are announced in the early part of the spring semester, and they participate in service projects during the weeks leading up to graduation. Their names are inscribed on department plaques at the conclusion of the academic year.
