Community Catalyst Award

Thanks to the generosity of a W&L alumni, this new award recognizes a student that shows outstanding leadership to improve the lives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer communities on the Washington and Lee campus and/or in the surrounding local area.  The first Community Catalyst Award will be presented at the 2018 LEAD Banquet
