True Blue Awards

 

THE TRUE BLUE AWARD honors an alumnus for "distinguished service" to his class. This award recognizes and thanks those whose exemplary gifts of time, outreach, and enthusiasm have been "true blue" in preserving the bonds of brotherhood for the class and keeping the long blue line running strong over the many years.

These alumni have served the school in every imaginable volunteer role from phonathons, to reunion committee, to class agents, to admissions recruitment, parent leadership, Tornado Club, Music Patrons, Alumni Council and sending their own sons to McCallie. Of greatest importance is the respect and love they have from their classmates as being that "one guy" who can be counted on to pull everyone together for the Big Blue. They can also be found mentoring and modeling to our students and young alumni what it means to be a "true blue" McCallie alum.
