Eagle Awards
Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 5 pm – 7 pm
Dodd Auditorium, George Washington Hall
Reception Following in Trinkle Hall
The University of Mary Washington Leadership Awards were established in 2001 to highlight those students, student organizations and staff who have provided leadership and contributed outstanding service through involvement in activities and organizations. The Leadership Awards are an opportunity for the University community to recognize those students who have made extraordinary contributions to the campus and greater community.  This year’s ceremony has been expanded to include the senior convocation program recognizing our graduating seniors, and the alumni and service awards previously presented at convocation.  To better capture the spirit of this expanded program we’ve renamed it the Eagle Awards. The event is open to the entire campus community as well as their family and friends.
