Anyone may nominate a Pasadena/Point Loma alum for an alumni award. To nominate an individual, please fill out the online forms (see links above) or send a letter or email to our office addressing the above criteria. Please indicate whether the nomination is for the APL or DA award. Nominations are compiled in July, recipients are chosen in July, and the awards are given during Homecoming weekend in November.

Please, do not tell the nominee or any of their family members about the nomination.

If you can discretely obtain a resume without the nominee's knowledge, please include their resume or vita.

If you can tell us two other people who know the nominee well, please do.

We are able to conduct some research to obtain the resume and additional information but the more information you can provide, the stronger the incoming nomination.

Selection will be completed in August and the award recipients will be contacted at that time.

Thank you!
