About the Alumni Founders Award
Georgetown Day School opened its doors in 1945 as the first integrated school in a segregated city, founded by seven families who sought to create a school committed to academic excellence, educational innovation, and social justice.
The Alumni Founders Award is given in the spring to honor an alumnus who embodies the GDS values of fighting for social justice, equity, and serving the greater good. Nominations are open to all fields and levels of accomplishment. Alumni may self-nominate or nominate others for the award.
The nomination period begins January 1 and ends April 15.
