Alumni Awards

St. Andrew's-Sewanee began its alumni awards program in 2005 with the first recognition banquet held during Alumni Weekend's Heritage/Centennial Tribute. Nearly 500 people gathered on the SAS lawns as Kix Brooks accepted the first Distinguished Alumni Award. Also bestowed were the first St. Andrew's-Sewanee Service Awards.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is given each year to the alumnus or alumna who has achieved excellence in his or her field of endeavor and/or has made outstanding contributions to his or her community, and has brought distinction to them, to their professions and to their alma mater.

The St. Andrew's-Sewanee Service Award is given to those individuals who have exhibited exemplary support of and leadership for St. Andrew's-Sewanee School. The ideal recipients shall include both alumni and friends of the school who have over time demonstrated unusual loyalty and service to the school by virtue of their time and talent, and in doing so have served as outstanding role models to current students and to future generations of SAS graduates.
