The Alumni Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed by the College on its best, brightest, and most successful alumni. This exceptional group of individuals is chosen from a broad range of industries. Our honorees are among the nation's premier impresarios, public servants, artists, and community leaders. Hall of Fame inductees are recognized for making a positive impact on their profession, the community, and the College.The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony also serves as a fundraiser for Miami Dade College student scholarships made available through the Miami Dade College Foundation. This annual event is the most important fundraising for the Foundation, which raises awareness and financial resources so MDC can maintain open-door access to anyone who wants an education. All net proceeds fund the Alumni Hall of Fame Scholarship, which provides student scholarships now and in the future.
