Each fall, the HCU Alumni Association hosts the Spirit of HCU Awards Dinner, honoring alumni, faculty and staff.

The dinner is an opportunity to recognize the recipients of the alumni awards selected by the HCU Alumni Association Advisory Board.  These awards include: Distinguished Alumnus, Meritorious Service Alumnus, the Hallmark Award, Emerging Alumnus Leader Award, and the Emma Key Faithful Servant Award.

At the same time, HCU Athletics inducts individuals into the HCU Athletic Hall of Honor, whose participation and contributions have enriched and strengthened the University’s athletic program.

Additionally, the President’s Award, Opal Goolsby Outstanding Teacher Award, and the Mayfield Outstanding Staff Award recipients will also be recognized.

All honorees at this event are inducted into the HCU Alumni Association Walk of Honor, located in the Bettis Quadrangle of the Brown Administrative Complex.

The entire University community as well as friends and family of the honorees are welcome to attend this event.  The Alumni Association looks forward to this opportunity to celebrate all those for their contributions at HCU, their work,  and the lasting impact each have on our community.
