Head of School's Award for Distinguished Service to the School

The Head of School’s Award recognizes alumni whose commitment and service to the school serves as an inspiration to all alumni. Recipients must have demonstrated commitment to the school’s mission by fostering a sense of “community, personal integrity and values,” and following Paul C. Ransom’s belief that people are “in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it.” Through their leadership, honor, attitude and dedication, they have made an irreplaceable mark on Ransom Everglades School and its future.
