Call for 2024 nominations

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized for exceptional service to the Alumni Association and W&M over the past year through involvement with chapters, clubs or constituent alumni organizations? The Alumni Service Award and Young Alumni Service Awards are given on the basis of service, loyalty, commitment and leadership. Selections are made in the spring at the Alumni Association Board of Directors meeting and the awards are bestowed in September. Nominations are due by April 1, 2024. Please submit your nomination by completing the form online.

The Douglas N. Morton '62 Alumni Service Awards are an alumni recognition award for exceptional service by alumni on behalf of alumni chapters, clubs, constituent organizations or associations, the Alumni Association, and in special instances, William & Mary and its schools. Any person (graduate or undergraduate) who qualifies as an alumnus according to the Bylaws, and is within 10 years of their undergraduate graduation, regardless of institution, are considered for the Douglas N. Morton '62 Young Alumni Service Award.

Inaugurated at the awards ceremony in September 2016, the naming of the awards pays tribute to Douglas N. Morton’s dedicated leadership and his powerful legacy. As noted in the dedication citation, “Doug Morton was an exemplary human.  He was one of W&M’s most accomplished and distinguished alumni and an extraordinarily generous and caring human being who lived a life of great meaning for other people. Doug gave selflessly and generously of his time, talent and treasure, and he was acknowledged for his contributions as both an Alumni Medallion recipient and a Homecoming Grand Marshal.
