The Roxbury Public Schools has a clear vision of “Preparing the children of today [and] for tomorrow.” Their underlying mission is to create a dynamic and thriving district, in partnership with a supportive and collaborative community that inspires and empowers all learners to flourish as ethical and global citizens in the 21st century.
It is in that spirit the question of what a global citizen looks like as a role model to our community is asked. How have they leveraged their academic, business and social acumen to motivate and inspire? What are the accomplishments that set them apart from their peers?
The Roxbury Public Schools Distinguished Alumni Award has been established to honor alumni who have typified the Roxbury School District tradition of excellence and brought credit to our community by their personal accomplishment, professional achievement, or humanitarian service.
All graduates of the Roxbury High School who have received their diploma and former students who attend the Roxbury School System for a minimum of five years are eligible for consideration of this award.
Alumni, faculty, staff, students, or friends of Roxbury Schools may submit nominations for the third annual Distinguished Alumni Award. All interested in submitting a nomination may complete and return the nomination form by no later than Feb. 15, 2017 for the upcoming selection year. Online submissions are preferred and can be located at https://www.roxbury.org/distinguishedalumni.
A Distinguished Alumni award will be given to each recipient, or posthumously to a family member or individual designated by the committee chairperson. Winners will receive a lifetime pass to all school events and a plaque will be installed in a prominent location within Roxbury High School.
