Alumni Awards

Think about the legacy of SAIT's more than 227,000 alumni during the past century and it's staggering. Building communities, growing businesses, leading change and raising families — their impact in our city and beyond is vast.

So where do you begin selecting graduates to recognize with SAIT's Alumni Awards during our centennial year? People who represent the values, diversity, talent and drive of the Institute's graduates? Well, you ask your community. And we did. And in SAIT's 100th year the answer was resounding, with a record 100-plus nominations for the Distinguished and Outstanding Young Alumni Awards.

This year's five recipients are proven leaders who demonstrate exceptional accomplishments in their fields, and their outstanding contributions to their communities are an inspiration as we celebrate 100 years of alumni achievement.
