CCRI's 2018 Outstanding Alumni Honorees


The Community College of Rhode Island alumni community now exceeds 66,000.  Our alumni have distinguished themselves as community leaders, have attained personal and professional success and contribute to the health and prosperity of communities throughout Rhode Island.

Presented by the CCRI Alumni Association in 1999, the Society of Knights Alumni Awards are presented to outstanding CCRI alumni who are active community leaders, accomplished professionals and help advance the mission of the college.  The Squire Awards recognize CCRI alumni who have shown outstanding professional growth and achievement in their field.

A Knight of Stars is a celebration of CCRI's past and current students.  Event participation and sponsorship helps our Alumni Association provide immediate financial assistance to students through our Alumni Scholarship, Student Emergency Fund and Alumni Book Awards.

Our college community is working to remove significant barriers impeding the success of our student.  We are seeing results, and we are not stopping.  Our students live and work in every community of our state.  When they succeed, our state succeeds.  Your support is critical to help us keep this momentum going.
