How to use "Distinguished" in context?

One definition of distinguished is "of or belonging to a high status or rank, either because one has achieved something remarkable or because one is distinguished by qualities such as intelligence or wealth". Eventually, the term developed a narrower legal definition, distinguishing between two classes of defendants - those who were innocent and those who were guilty of a felony - based on their social standing.

Over time, the term has come to be associated with brilliance, distinction, and superiority. So, it is not only a definition for a professional status, but also one for personal character.
