We look forward to presenting this year's Distinguished Brooksian award to Steven Gorham '85, P'17, P'21 and Richard V. Spencer '72; the Alumni Bowl to Valentine Hollingsworth III '72, P'17; and Alumni Shield to Lizette Williams '97. We will also honor 2020's and 2021's respective Alumni Shield winners, Lisa Petzold '00 and Marquis Daisy '01.
We do rely on award nominations from our alumni community. To nominate a classmate for a future award, please tell us about him or her below.
The Distinguished Brooksian award honors individuals whose life and contributions to society exemplify the nobility of character and usefulness to humanity embodied in the spirit of the school. Dr. Joseph Sherer '37 presented the first Distinguished Brooksian award to Frank Davis Ashburn on Prize Day, May 27, 1991.
The Alumni Shield award celebrates early achievement by a Brooks alumnus/a within 25 years of leaving Brooks. The concept of this award developed from the interest of the Alumni Board to recognize a member of the Brooks community who, through the devotion of his/her resources, has had significant accomplishments in the field of his/her endeavor.
