Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards

The recognition of alumni who have distinguished themselves after graduation is a testament to the quality of the academic and student life at the University of Wyoming. The Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Awards have served as a long-standing Homecoming tradition recognizing outstanding UW alumni and individuals who have attained excellence in their careers or professions or have provided outstanding service through time, talent, affection, and dedication to the University of Wyoming and thus brought honor to UW. The first Distinguished Alumnus was Emory Land in 1953 and the first Medallion Service Award Recipient was Lloyd Eaton in 1968. To date, 195 and 37 individuals have been recognized as Distinguished Alumni and Medallion Service Award Recipients. A list of the recipients can be found on the UW Alumni Association website.
