Young Alumni Rising Star Award
The Young Alumni Rising Star Award honors young alumni of the last 15 years, who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in their chosen field or used their success to bring good to the world. Recipients will also have shown a strong affinity for their alma mater: Webb School of California or Vivian Webb School.
Preference is given to young alumni in a reunion year. The recipient must be available to attend Alumni Weekend to receive the award, or they must be able to come to campus during the school year for another major school event, such as Unbounded Days, Men in the Arena or Dies Mulieres. In 2018, the young alumni classes celebrating reunions are 2003, 2008 and 2013.
Finalists are determined by the Alumni Council's Awards Committee. The final selection is made by the Alumni Council President, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Head of Schools and alumni staff. Each award may be given out annually to one or more recipients; however, if the committee does not find a suitable candidate, then the award may not be given that year.
Nominees who are not selected are still eligible for the next four years and do not need to resubmit an entry.
