Annual Alumni Awards

Tommies are everywhere, and they seek to positively impact society and their communities through professional excellence and service around the world.

We proudly honor their extraordinary contributions at the annual St. Thomas Day celebration, during which alumni receive the Distinguished Alumnus/Alumna Award, Humanitarian Award, Monsignor James Lavin Award and Spirit of St. Thomas Award. We also distribute alumni volunteer achievement awards earned through the Society of the Arches.

Honoring Our Tommies

We currently are seeking nominations for outstanding alumni who should be recognized for the university's four alumni awards: Distinguished Alumnus/Alumna, Humanitarian, Monsignor James Lavin, and the Spirit of St. Thomas.

Nominating notable alumni helps us elevate those who are making an incredible impact and provides inspiration to our community through stories of their unique journeys. Each honoree will be invited, along with their family and friends, to the St. Thomas Day celebration where they will be recognized for their achievements. Their stories also will be shared through personalized videos.
