The purpose of the OWHS Distinguished Alumni Award is to recognize outstanding alumni of Oshkosh West High School who have maintained a high standard of excellence and distinguished themselves through their work, personal accomplishments, or in the lives of others. These individuals exemplify the values of Oshkosh West High School and should be held as role models for current and future Oshkosh West students. 

Through this award program, Oshkosh West is able to honor a variety of individuals who have excelled in their professions, are role models, and/or provide leadership to students. The 2023 recipient will be recognized during a special ceremony at Oshkosh West High School. Each year, the ceremony is structured around the desires of the award recipient. Past recipients have addressed the student body with powerful messages about their success and how they achieved what they did in life.
