The Vikings of Distinction program was established to honor North
High graduates who have achieved outstanding success in their chosen
careers, faculty who played a significant role in the development of
his/her students and organizations that have been a special "Friend of
North High School.
The Vikings of Distinction is funded entirely by contributions and yearly awards scholarships to deserving members of the graduating class.
Although the Vikings of Distinction awards recognize adults for their
achievements, the program was created to help inspire and motivate
students. Our honorees return to North, participate in the school's
honors convocations, meet with students in small informal group sessions
and, in general, serve as role models. The honor of being named a NORTH STAR is given in memory of an outstanding alumnus who is deceased.
To be named a Viking of Distinction, an individual, company or
organization must first be nominated. The Vikings of Distinction
Committee maintains a permanent record of all nominations and each year
chooses those be honored by a vote of the full Committee.
Any North High School graduate, faculty member or former faculty
member may nominate candidates for the awards. To be eligible, alumni
must have been graduated for at least 20 years and faculty members must
be retired. Nominations should be made in writing to the Vikings of
Distinction Committee, care of North High School, 4410 North 36th
Street, Omaha, NE 68111. [Download the Nomination Form in PDF format]
