Distinguished Alumni

With the 50th Anniversary celebration of South High in 2014, DGS named its Inaugural Class of "Distinguished Alumni." We recognized the first class of Distinguished Alumni during Homecoming 2014 as well as on our new "Distinguished Alumni Wall of Fame" wall inside the main entrance to the school. Please read more about those who were recognized and our celebration here.

The purpose of the Distinguished Alumni program is to recognize Downers Grove South alumni who have made significant contributions to society and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of excellence at South High School.

The Distinguished Alumni Award does more than honor its recipients. It also further illustrates the great value of the academic programs and student involvement at South and increases the pride all former students, current students, staff and faculty have for their High School.

Recipients may be accomplished in three distinct areas as outlined below. This distinction will be reflective of Downers Grove South’s core values – being respectful, responsible, and engaged.

The selection committee will look at the following criteria when making their selections:

  • - Professional Achievement, Career or Military Service Distinction

  • - Service to Society

  • - Service and Support to Downers Grove South High School or the Community

In order to be eligible, a nominee must have graduated South High School on or before 2005.

Nominations must be made online by clicking this link before March 15th, 2016.  Alumni are welcome to nominate themselves.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact John Aldworth at or 630-795-8518. Thank you for your interest in this wonderful new tradition at South High School.
