ABOUT THE RONALD REAGAN LEADERSHIP MEDAL
This prestigious award is presented to graduating students who best exemplify the following characteristics: Drive, Humility, and Service Before Self. Every high school in America may nominate one graduating senior for a Ronald Reagan Leadership Medal. This award allows schools to recognize outstanding high school students whose drive, integrity, and citizenship qualities are emblematic of our nation's 40th President. Each nominated student will receive an exclusive medallion and a letter of recognition from David Trulio, the Executive Director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. Awards will be mailed to school administrators during the month of April, in time to be presented at a culmination ceremony, award reception, or graduation. We encourage students to wear their medallions, take pictures with it, and share it on social media.
To be eligible for this award, the student must:
- Graduate in the current academic year
- Exemplify the values of Drive, Humility and Service Before Self
Each academic year, only one graduating senior per high school may receive an award. It is the responsibility of each school's administrators to confer with one another to make their sole selection for the award. Multiple submissions by the same school may result in disqualification.
