Awardees

Each John Carroll Weekend culminates with a banquet celebrating the John Carroll and Patrick Healy Award recipients. Each is recognized for their service to Georgetown and their communities, their lifetime achievements and their dedication to advancing Georgetown's mission of distinguished service and leadership.

The John Carroll Award

The John Carroll Award was established by the Georgetown University Alumni Association in 1952 to honor alumni whose achievements exemplify the ideals and traditions of Georgetown University and its founder, Archbishop John Carroll. The John Carroll Award is the highest honor bestowed by the alumni association. All recipients have distinguished themselves through lifetime achievement and outstanding service to their alma mater. Five John Carroll Awards are presented each year.

2015 John Carroll Award recipients

Richard L. Battista (B’86) — Los Angeles, California

Carmen A. Policy (L’66) — Yountville, California

Mary Machado Schammel (C’80, MBA’16) — Pasadena, California

Paul J. Tagliabue (C’62) — Washington, D.C.

David J. Walsh (C’58) — New York, New York

 


 

The Patrick Healy Award

The Patrick Healy Award is the highest honor bestowed by the alumni association upon distinguished individuals who are not alumni. Established in 1969 and named for Rev. Patrick Healy, S.J., the first black president of a major American university and Georgetown's "second founder," the Patrick Healy Award symbolizes the deep admiration that the university holds for these unique individuals and special friends of Georgetown. This year, the alumni association will present two Patrick Healy Awards.

 2015 Patrick Healy Award recipients

Irma M. Frank (Parent’91, ’94, ’96, ’97, ’99) — McLean, Virginia

Donald F. McHenry (H’81) — Washington, D.C.

 

Nomination Process

There are four criteria for selection: lifetime achievement, dedication to the principles of Georgetown, volunteer service to Georgetown and community and public service. A nomination form is sent to all alumni. Approximately one month after the nomination deadline, a selection committee of the Board of Governors meets to choose the recipients.
