 2015 Distinguished Alumni Recipients  
Congratulations to our 2015 Distinguished Alumni Recipients:  
Dr. Virginia Smith Class of 1971, Dr. William N. Miller Class of 1959, Rev. Peggy Bonsell Class of 1964
 
      
The Tyrone Area High School has produced outstanding graduates who have achieved greatness and made significant contributions to humanity in areas such as medicine, government, research, and civil service.  To honor these individuals, Tyrone Area School District initiated the Distinguished Alumni Award that was presented for the first time in the fall of 2002.  A committee of anonymous judges, one graduate from each decade since 1940, evaluates nomination forms, the candidate's resume or vita, and letters of support.  The superintendent of schools facilitates the process as a nonvoting member of the committee.  Portraits of our 30 Distinguished Alumni Award receipts are displayed on the Tyrone Area High School "Wall of Fame," directly across from the auditorium.
