The EKU College of Health Sciences (CHS) has a distinguished history of preparing exemplary graduates that have made a significant impact in the field of health, wellness and human services.  In 2021, CHS established an annual awards program to recognize exemplary alumni.  The CHS Distinguished Alumni Award and the CHS Emerging Leader Award will be presented annually during the CHS Scholars Day event.

The CHS Distinguished Alumni Award is the highest honor bestowed upon an alumnus from the College. The award recognizes individuals that have achieved distinction in their professional or personal field of endeavor.  Recipients have made significant contributions to the success and vitality of their local communities, state, nation or world through leadership, service, research, practice, or creative innovations in health, wellness or human services.
