WUSD Distinguished Alumni Award

The Distinguished Alumni Award is formed for the purpose of providing our current students and community with a vision of the outstanding legacies of Watertown High School.  It is hoped that these people will provide role models for our current students and offer us a chance to celebrate the successes of those who have graduated from our school.

Nominations for the Distinguished Alumni Award are accepted November through April of each school year with selection in May.  The award is presented during Homecoming festivities the following fall (September/October).
