Jaguar Awards

Each year, the Southwestern College Foundation honors outstanding individuals who exemplify what it means to be a Jaguar.  We have had the pleasure of spotlighting some incredible people, including Southwestern College Alumni, South County Champions, and Community Leaders of all kinds.  

Join us on November 7th 2024 as we highlight the accomplishments and impact of a new honoree!
