The purpose of the Distinguished Alumni program is to recognize GCMS alumni who have made significant contributions to society, and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of excellence of Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley District #5.

Their careers and achievements honor and sustain the legacy of excellence that is GCMS schools.
