The Storm King School is getting ready to celebrate its historic Sesquicentennial at Reunion 2018 which takes place in less than two weeks. A highlight of the event will be the 2018 Alumni Awards to be handed out on Saturday, June 9. Storm King’s Alumni Awards, including the Margaret Clark Faculty Excellence Award, the SKS Sports Hall of Fame (SHOF) inductions, and the Founder’s Cup, are important Storm King traditions which are carried out each year during reunion weekend. The awards serve to generate a lot of interest within the Storm King community, especially among our alumni, and each one has its own unique history.
The Founder's Cup
The Founder’s Cup is The Storm King School’s highest honor and is awarded to a graduate who has demonstrated the following qualities: provided distinguished service to The Storm King School community; distinguished professional excellence; and/or regional, national, or global distinction.
The Margaret Clark Faculty Excellence Award
Miss Margaret Clark retired from The Storm King School as a distinguished member of the faculty in 1938, completing 44 years of service as an art teacher. During her tenure, Margaret’s responsibilities grew from a teacher of art to head of the entire Lower School. During World War I, she ran the infirmary as well as the entire administration, while continuing to teach her legendary art classes. She is also credited with the designing of The Storm King School Crest that is used today. Established in 2006, The Margaret Clark Faculty Excellence Award is given during the School’s annual Reunion Weekend to a former faculty member of longevity whose dedication transcends the classroom and whose high ideals have become part of the student-centered tradition of The Storm King School.
The Sports Hall of Fame Award
Established in 1994, The Storm King School Sports Hall of Fame recognizes exceptional athletic achievement by Storm King Alumni, coaches, athletic directors, and teams. Members of the Storm King School Sports Hall of Fame are inducted at a special ceremony during the School’s annual June Reunion Weekend.
The Storm King School Alumni Association Awards Committee is seeking nominations this year for the Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Nominations are being accepted for individual athletes, teams, and coaches whose distinguished records, dedication, and commitment to the ideals of The Storm King School Athletic Program exemplify the core values and mission of The Storm King School.
