Created in 1941, Alumni Medals are awarded to recognize achievement of an exceptional nature in any field, vocational or voluntary, covering an entire career. It is the highest honor the Alumni Association can bestow. Because the value of the medal is defined by its recipients, it has been given sparingly. Medals are awarded to no more than one person each year and need not be awarded on an annual basis.
