The Amherst Central Alumni Foundation takes pride in honoring its alumni and educators for their exceptional accomplishments. The Foundation has been presenting the Distinguished Educator Emeritus Award since 2004 and the Distinguished Alumni Award since 2016.
The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes a rich and diverse pool of Amherst Alumni leaders and innovators who, through their outstanding accomplishments, have improved the lives of others and have significantly contributed to their communities and professions.
The Educator Emeritus Award recognizes retired faculty and administrators for their extraordinary contributions to their students while in service at Amherst Central High School, Amherst Central Middle School, Smallwood Drive Elementary, Windermere Boulevard Elementary, Harlem Road Elementary and Eggert Road Elementary schools.
