In celebration of its 85th Anniversary, Long Beach City College is encouraging community members to nominate LBCC Alumni who attended LBCC between 1930 and 2012 to be nominated for the Viking of the Decade Awards. Honorees will be selected based on their accomplishments as students, in their careers and for service to the community.

“As we celebrate 85 years of LBCC providing educational opportunities to our community, we are now asking community members to nominate outstanding alumni to be honored as exemplary Viking Alumni of the Decade,” said LBCC Superintendent-President Eloy Ortiz Oakley. “We would like to honor the great Viking students who attended LBCC and went on to be successful in their chosen field and have given back to the community.”

Alumni from each decade will be honored at the 85th Anniversary Gala in the Hall of Champions. Honorees must be nominated by March 31, 2013, and must have completed at least 12 units of study at LBCC, demonstrated involvement and Viking spirit as students, a successful career and dedicated service to LBCC and the community.
