Distinguished Alumni Emblem
     2017 Distinguished Alumni Award Winners  
    Congratulations to our 2017 Distinguished Alumni Recipients:  
    Jeffery Long, Class of 1976 and Matthew Newlin, M.D., Class of 1987
  • 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 32 Distinguished Alumni Award receipts are displayed on the Tyrone Area High School "Wall of Fame," directly across from the auditorium.
