Fifty-four people, including Hartung and Edinger, have been named Distinguished Alumni since the awards first were presented in 2004. They join past honorees that include a county judge, county commissioners, physicians and other notable graduates.

The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes those who have utilized their education and experience at BC3 to achieve significant levels of success and who have a commitment to community service.

Hartung and Edinger each enrolled at BC3 two years after their graduation from high school. They are among the approximately 25,500 former students who have earned at least 45 credits at BC3 since its first class assembled in 1966.

Hartung earned an associate degree from BC3 in 1980 and Edinger, in 1984.
