Distinguished Alumnus Award
The Maclay School Distinguished Alumnus/na Award was established in 2014. It is the highest award presented by the Maclay School Alumni Association. Candidates will have distinguished themselves through personal or professional achievement, must have attended or graduated from Maclay, and may not be a current member of the Alumni Board.
This award will be given to recognize Maclay alumni for any or all of the following areas:
- notable achievement in professional field
- service to his or her community, state or nation
- service to the arts, sciences, or humanitarian causes
- loyalty to Maclay
The purpose of the Distinguished Alumni Award is “to bestow recognition and appreciation for outstanding achievement. The award is a meritorious reflection on the school and provides inspiration and encouragement for our young people.
The Alumni Board, in conjunction with the Alumni Office, will solicit nominations each year from alumni, parents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends of Maclay School. From those alumni nominations, a Selection Committee reviews the names and determines the most appropriate person for that year. The Selection Committee submits a slate to the Alumni Board and the Board votes on the slate. The approved slated is submitted to the Head of School for final approval. There will be one Distinguished Alumni Award recipient each year. It is a difficult task to narrow down the list of qualified applicants – we are very fortunate to have so many from which to choose.
