San Marcos Academy
Katherine Shultz Character Award
The Katherine Shultz Character Award was established by the Alumni Association Council in 2017 to recognize and honor alumni who have demonstrated extraordinary service to the school and in their chosen fields while exhibiting the remarkable character embodied in Katherine Shultz. Extraordinary service to the school can be defined in many ways: interest in San Marcos Baptist Academy, volunteer participation at San Marcos Baptist Academy, fundraising, leadership or simply uncommon dedication to the school and service to their fellow ex-students. Remarkable Character can be described in many ways: faith in God and fellow man; bold optimism and determination to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles; and wise mentorship that illuminates a better path for associates.
While graduation from SMBA is not a requirement, nominees must have attended SMBA and must have completed high school at least 10 years prior to nomination. Each recipient’s name shall be engraved upon a perpetual plaque bearing the name of the award. The plaque will be displayed at the Academy in a prominent place. Each recipient will be presented with an individual plaque.
All members of the San Marcos Baptist Academy community are invited to submit nominations for this award. Nominations will be reviewed by a selection committee composed of members of the Alumni Council, the Alumni Director and Academy administration who will elect the recipient(s). The recipient will be honored at Homecoming.
Nominations should be sent to the Alumni Council/Alumni Office, by the end of January to allow time for consideration before presentation at the next homecoming event.
