The University of Texas at El Paso is looking for the 2020 Distinguished Alumni recipient.

If you or someone you know graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso and has gone on to great success, you ... or they ... could be this year's distinguished alumni and/or gold nugget award winner. A good friend of my Dad's won it once and they got to do all kinds of cool stuff. Watching games from the press box, VIP treatment, etc. According to the El Paso Herald Post:

“As part of this long-standing tradition, the selected honorees will be invited to this year’s Homecoming festivities in the fall and will be asked to participate in a number of activities, including celebratory receptions, the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner and the Homecoming football game,”
