The Gannon University Alumni Association is proud to recognize four Distinguished Alumni honorees for 2022. For over thirty years, the Distinguished Alumni Awards have been presented to Gannon and Villa Maria college alumni in recognition of achievements and contributions to their profession, service to their community and loyalty to Gannon University.

The Distinguished Alumni Awards are presented by the National Alumni Board, the governing body of the Alumni Association. It is the highest honor an alumnus can receive.

The 2022 Distinguished Alumni Honorees are:

Joseph E. Kloecker '74, '79M

Thomas C. Guelcher '62, '76M

Lt. Thomas L. Lenox '98

Rev. Msgr. Robert L. Brugger '62

“This year’s class of Distinguished Alumni honorees embodies all that it means to be a Gannon Knight,” said Kelly (Fennessy) Meredith, ’08, secretary of the National Alumni Board. “We are proud to recognize their accomplishments and highlight the many ways they remain active and involved with the University, their communities, and beyond.”
