This award, the highest bestowed by the council, recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves through constant pursuit of excellence and whose outstanding personal and professional achievements exemplify the ideal proclaimed in Boston College’s motto, “Ever to Excel.”

Over the past 25 years, the Tribute Dinner has raised more than $22 million for Presidential Scholars at Boston College. Through this program, Boston College is able to attract the best and brightest students from around the world. Your generosity has helped more than 250 students participate in extraordinary service programs and continue to carry the Jesuit ideal of "men and women for others" into their post-graduate careers. In addition to their accomplishments at BC, many of these students later become recipients of the nation's most prestigious academic awards, including Rhodes, Marshall, Winston Churchill, Truman and Goldwater Scholarships, as well as Fulbright and Jacob K. Javits Fellowships.

This year, our Presidential Scholar speaker, Brooke Loughrin ’14, provided a perfect representation of the power of this program with her inspiring speech—and we want to share that with you.
