Chapter Service Volunteer Awards

The Washington and Lee Office of Alumni Engagement is excited to announce the Chapter Service Volunteer Award, a new program to shine a light on local "unsung heroes" who have made a valuable contribution to their local alumni chapter. Some of them do not have titles and/or have not received a formal expression of gratitude. This award provides chapters a tool to honor and thank such a person. The only criteria is to have rendered valuable service of direct benefit to your alumni chapter, past or present. Alumni, parents, and friends were eligible. Current chapter presidents were ineligible.

Below is a list of our inaugural honorees, congratulations and thank you for all you do!
