Nominate an outstanding Tougalooian for this distinguished award!

The TCNAA Hall of Fame Induction represents an attempt by the Tougaloo College National Alumni Association to carefully select and publicly acknowledge supportive alumni who have distinguished themselves in their respective professions. This distinguished Alumni award also publicly acknowledges and encourages other outstanding alumni to become supportive of TCNAA and Tougaloo College. The committee will select five individuals each year based on their contribution and/or success in any of the following ten categories, which include:

Athletics, Arts & Entertainment, Business, Communications, Community Service, Education, Government & Law, Medicine, Religion, and Science.


• Should be alumnus of Tougaloo College.
• Accomplishments in his/her field must be documented.
• Contributions to Tougaloo (financially and in-kind services) must be documented.
Consideration will also be given to individuals we want to encourage to become contributors to   TCNAA and Tougaloo College.
• Must be present at the banquet in order to be honored (unless recognized posthumously).   However, under extenuating circumstances as determined by the committee, an award may be   given in absentia.
