Alumni Hall of Fame


 

College of the Canyons Alumni Hall of Fame Vision

 

The quality of College of the Canyons is reflected in the achievements of its students, outstanding alumni, and friends.  In honor of their accomplishments, and in recognition of others who invest in education, Dr. Dianne Van Hook initiated the creation of an Alumni Hall of Fame.

It spotlights the success of our alumni and acknowledges the role of the community college in their outstanding achievements.  Those selected for admission exemplify the power and potential of a community college education.  Our graduates have contributed to the advancement of business, healthcare, government, public service, education, science, the arts, sports and more.

At the same time, they serve as role models for current students, and demonstrate that by pursuing our dreams, we can achieve more than we ever believed was possible.​
