Black Hawk College Foundation

Celebrating Outstanding Alumni of BHC

Excellence in their humanitarian and professional efforts.


Black Hawk College Foundation

Black Hawk College has a longstanding tradition of excellence.

The Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding individuals for their professional and community service, including such notable graduates (and former students) as United States Representative Lane Evans; Rose Vasquez, Diversity Analyst at Principal Financial Group; Robert Ontiveros, Chairman and Founder, Group O; and nationally-recognized Chad Pregracke, founder Living Lands and Waters.

Hall of Fame Members are selected using two fundamental criteria: outstanding distinction and success in their chosen field; and, secondly, Humanitarian service, which has proven beneficial to society.
