Outstanding Virginian Award

Register for the 2018 Outstanding Virginian Award Luncheon

 

The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia established the Outstanding Virginian Award to honor recipients whose distinguished contributions, outstanding achievements, and dedicated leadership serve as an inspiration to all civic-minded citizens. The award, considered the Commonwealth’s highest honor, was first presented to United States Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr. in 1983.

The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and the General Assembly-appointed Outstanding Virginian Committee co-host the annual Outstanding Virginian Award Ceremony to honor the year’s recipient(s) in a celebration that includes their family members, friends, and admirers. Proceeds realized from the event support the Outstanding Virginian Bicentennial Scholarship at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.

The 2018 Outstanding Virginian, the Honorable William J. Howell, will be honored on Saturday, April 28, 2018, during a ceremony at the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. To join us in honoring Mr. Howell, please register for the event here.
