Distinguished Alumnus Award Mission Statement

The Distinguished Alumnus Award recognizes a deserving alumnus who has achieved distinction in his professional career, humanitarian endeavors, or other areas of his life. This award honors an individual who has embraced the core values emphasized at Avon Old Farms. By celebrating the accomplishments of the recipient, Avon Old Farms nourishes the strong sense of pride within our school community and acknowledges the inherent value in recognizing excellence among our alumni.

The prestigious Distinguished Alumnus Award is bestowed based upon the selection and recommendation of the National Council, a group of up to 60 individuals representing alumni, parents, and friends of Avon of Avon Old Farms School, and in consultation with the Headmaster. The award is given every other year.
