Distinguished Society Award

West Point Societies, in existence since 1926, have long advanced the interests of the United States Military Academy. In view of that fact, during the May 1994 meeting of the Board of Trustees of the West Point Association of Graduates, the West Point Societies Committee proposed the establishment of a Distinguished Society Award. Presented at the annual Leaders’ Conference, the award recognizes those Societies whose service, as characterized by the effectiveness of their activities and programs, has made a significant contribution to the support of the United States Military Academy and its graduates, and whose activities and programs serve to enhance the image of the Military Academy in their local communities. More information about the award is available online in the Society Leader Toolkit. Administration for this award is handled by the Society Services Department – Society-Support@wpaog.org.
