Since 1953, this prestigious award has been presented
to our most accomplished alumni. Throughout the years, we have celebrated bright minds, ambitious spirits and bold actions that have made a significant impact in communities across the nation, the globe and in our Valley.

From astronauts and politicians, award-winning actors and poets, NFL athletes and US Olympians, to entrepreneurs and innovators, Fresno State has helped support and grow incredible alumni.

We are proud to celebrate this year’s remarkable alumni and friends and reflect on their notable successes.
