Nominations Sought for McCardell Citizens' Medals

February 20, 2018

Middlebury invites faculty, staff, and students to submit nominations for the Bonnie and John McCardell Citizens’ Medals. The award is named for the former Middlebury president and his wife to honor their ethic of public service.

Started during the College’s bicentennial year in 2000, the program is intended to recognize local residents who have helped strengthen the Addison County community through their public service. Over the past seventeen years, the College has presented medals to residents of Middlebury and surrounding towns for their service in such fields as medicine, education, business, philanthropy, government, and the arts.

Nominations for the 2018 Citizens’ Medals should be submitted paper or email to: David Donahue, Office of the President, Old Chapel. The deadline for nominations is March 2, 2018.

Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, or students. To be given fair consideration the nomination should consist of a 100 to 200-word summary of the individual’s contributions to the Addison County community, and a chronology of volunteer and public service related activities. Members of the campus community can nominate someone who has been nominated before, assuming they were not selected previously. Nominees must be current residents of Addison County and Middlebury College employees are not eligible for the award.

The names of the winners will be announced in April.
