2020 All College Awards

Each year, Warner College pauses for a moment in the Spring to recognize the outstanding achievements of members of our College Community through the Annual College Awards. Typically, we gather in commnity at the Spring Banquet to celebrate these awards, but this year, we offer that recognition digitally. Warner College’s digital events ceremony will run from Monday April 27 through Friday May 8. Each day, more award winners will be announced and their recognition videos added to this website.

You can also see the award videos on Warner College social media channels and at the 2020 Awards Playlist on the College’s Youtube Channel.
