Distinguished Alumni Award

The Distinguished Alumni awards have been created in an effort to recognize graduates of Ticonderoga High School who have succeeded in their personal and professional lives. Alumni selected will have distinguished themselves by virtue of their contributions to community and/or society as well as to their careers. The goal of the awards is to introduce positive role models to the Ticonderoga High School community and the achievements of these outstanding alumni should inspire students and encourage them to adopt high aspirations.
