Alumni Awards

The Dunn Family

Greater Good Award

Instilled with a passion for their purpose and a dedication to the greater good of humanity, Lawrence Academy graduates have done some truly incredible things after leaving campus. To honor them, the Dunn Family (Jay ’83, Marty ’85, Peter ’86, Margaret ’90, and their parents) established the Greater Good Award in 2005. Each fall on Founders’ Day and each spring on Cum Laude Day, the award is presented to a current or former Spartan who has demonstrated through their actions an understanding of their responsibility to use their education to benefit others.
