Written by David Green.

A trio of Morenci High School graduates will be honored in April through the Morenci Education Foundation’s Distinguished Alumni program.

The Foundation board is seeking nominations for this year’s distinguished graduates.

“These awards were initiated to honor graduates of Morenci Area Schools for their accomplishments in their professions as well as in their communities,” said Foundation president Bill Van Valkenburg.

“If you know of a Morenci High School graduate who has made a significant contribution to society and you feel they are worthy of this special honor, please write a letter of nomination,” he said.

Letters should include reasons for making the nomination and information for  contacting the nominee.

Nominations should be mailed to: Volunteer Club, Morenci Area High School, 700 E. Coomer St., Morenci, MI 49256.

Nominations must be received by Feb. 28 for this year’s award presentation.

The Morenci Area High School Volunteer Club will again assist in choosing alumni for the award.
