Five William and Mary Alumni presented with medallions

On Saturday February 5th, the Alumni Association awarded five alumni with medallions for outstanding leadership, professionalism, and commitment to the community.  The Alumni medallion is the highest award that the Alumni Association bestows upon graduates. Recipients are honored for both their achievements post-graduation and their continued commitment to the alma mater. The difference among the six recipients reflects the diversity of the William and Mary community today. One of the recipients, Sue Hanna Gerderlman (’76), is known for her leadership and volunteerism everywhere she has lived and worked. Rene A. Henry (’54), an expert in public relations and a published author was also among those honored with the award.  He urged alumni to give back to the College. The vice president of Sprint, Marilyn Ward Midyette (’75), was also recognized for her success and her commitment to various organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association. Through leading businesses, non-profits, and performing arts organizations, J. Robert Mooney (’66) has made his mark on the Richmond area and earned the Alumni medallion as well. The final recipient was former FCC chairman Michael K. Powell (’85), who expressed his gratitude to the College for playing an important role in his life.
