Fall 2010 Issue


Very Distinguished

The Distinguished Alumni Awards were created in 2007 to honor the vast network of dedicated and inspiring alumni that hail from Barry University. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a graduate by the Alumni Association, and in three short years it has become the Association’s signature event and one of the most highly anticipated on campus.

The six individuals honored this year are recognized not only for their professional achievements but also for their contributions to society and support of the University.

So please meet our 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award recipients. Among them are sailors, pilots, cancer survivors, human rights advocates, football fans, dedicated volunteers, race car enthusiasts, marathon runners, equestrians, foodies, adventure travelers, bloggers and triathletes.
