Celebrating YCP Alumni

Recognizing Spartans for Life

With all the individuals that have called YCP home at some point or another, there are always Spartans to recognize and acknowledge for the strides and accomplishments that they have made in their respective fields all over the world. With awards and spotlights throughout the year, we hope to give credit where it’s due to each of our alumni. 

Do you have something to share with us that we may have missed about you or a fellow alum? Submit a Class Note or email us at alumni@ycp.edu.

Another way we recognize alumni is with our annual Spartans of the Year awards. Nominations open annually in January.
