It’s hard to believe that Lawrence Academy is in its 50th year! Through the years , we have had the privilege of graduating over 1000 graduates. Remember that warm spring evening, when you were instructed to “turn your tassel” and leave the building as graduates? Where are you now? What are you doing? We need your help again!
Throughout the years you and your families entrusted your education and the foundation of your careers to this school. All too often after graduation, the school is forgotten and left to wonder how each student has fared in the world beyond its walls. We would love to hear your success stories. We are eager to establish a more active alumni association for our school so we can stay better connected with the graduates.
One of the ultimate goals of our Alumni Association is to recognize and honor an outstanding Lawrence alumnus with a Distinguished Alumni Award. We are in our tenth year of honoring such Alumnus.
Our recipients are:
2009 Barry S. Cobb – 1985 Graduate
2010 Robert Glenn Taylor – 1990 Graduate
2011 Jonathan Stokes Powell III – 1984 Graduate
2012 Gennia Winslow Wellington – 1985 Graduate
2013 Melanie Edwards – 1993 Graduate
2014 Danny A. Bass – 1977 Graduate
2015 Nona W. Elliott – 1982 Graduate
2016 Beth Anne Atkins – 1991 Graduate
2017 Lloyd Jones – 1976 Graduate
2018 Jenny Blount Williams – 1995 Graduate
This award was established to honor annually a Lawrence Alumnus who has contributed to his/her community through his/her profession or community service. If you know of a classmate who you feel meets the requirements of an outstanding performance in his/her profession or community please let us know. We look forward to hearing from you!
