HCC Alumni Association presents 2019 Outstanding Alumnus Award
The Hagerstown Community College Alumni Association named Gracie and Eddie Wiley as Outstanding Alumni of 2019 during the college’s Honors Convocation. HCC Alumni Association Immediate Past President Linda Reid presented the award in recognition of the Wiley’s meritorious unpaid service to Hagerstown Community College and the Alumni Association, as well service to the community.
Sadly, Gracie Wiley died unexpectedly on November 1, 2019, after a short illness, which makes this year’s award even more meaningful.
Gracie Wiley was a 1991 graduate of Hagerstown Junior College, as well as a graduate of Excelsior College of New York. She retired after a 37-year career in the United States Government working for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Eddie Wiley attended HCC from 1999 to 2003 and graduated from University of Maryland. He is retired from the United States Army, where he served as a senior communication electronic operations chief. Additionally, he served as a team leader in information technology for the U.S. Government.
Since 1996, the Wiley’s have given numerous hours of their time to volunteer at HCC and with the HCC Alumni Association. Currently, Eddie serves on the HCC Alumni Association board, and Gracie previously served as a vice president of the association. Their daughter, Rhonda Kim Wiley, also a graduate of HCC, is an active member of the HCC Alumni Association.
Gracie will be deeply missed by all of her friends in the HCC Alumni Association.
