The Distinguished Alumni Award is the highest service award given within the Alumni Association (including St. Andrews, Flora Macdonald College, and Presbyterian Junior College). The St. Andrews Alumni Council chooses nominees based on outstanding service to their community, the University, and/or the Church.  It is presented at the Alumni Dinner during Alumni Weekend in April of each year.
