Since 1969, San Diego Miramar College has trained more than 10,000 law enforcement and firefighter professionals. Since those early days, in addition to our well-respected public safety graduates, highly skilled diesel, automotive and FAA-certified aviation technicians, EMTs, biotechnicians, paralegal, computer and child development professionals have walked across our commencement stage.
Add to those numbers the many thousands of Miramar College students who have successfully transferred to four-year colleges and universities to continue their higher education and you can see why we are proud of our legacy. If you are equally proud to have graduated or transferred from Miramar College, join the Alumni Association. If you attended Miramar College, we'd like to hear from you!

In 1995, the College began a tradition of recognizing Distinguished Alumni at annual commencement ceremonies. The following individuals are an inspiration for all students.
Miramar College recently named San Diego Fire Chief Brian Fennessy as its 2016 Distinguished Alumni. Fennessy graduated from the October 1990 Fire Academy at Miramar College and was promoted to San Diego’s Fire Chief in November of 2015. He became just the 17th Fire Chief in the history of San Diego as he succeeded Javier Mainar. Fennessy has 38 years of firefighting experience that began with the U.S. Forest Service. He joined the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department in 1990 and rose through the ranks.
One of Fennessy's most notable accomplishments is being the driving force in developing and implementing the City's helicopter program. The City now has two firefighting and rescue helicopters with night-flying capability that are available for water drops and rescues throughout the county. These helicopters are the only air resources in the region capable of providing night firefighting operations.
