2019 President's Medal Honorees

This biannual event will celebrate the leadership of six members of the St. John's community who will receive the President’s Medal, the school’s highest honor. Traditionally, this medal is awarded to distinguished alumni and friends of the school who have given extraordinary service to St. John’s or to the world community.
At left: Major General Ronald Beckwith '53 passed away on Feb. 17, 2019, and will be honored posthumously at the President's Medal Celebration. Fortunately, St. John's President Jeff Mancabelli had the opportunity to visit with Maj. Gen. Beckwith in January and present him with his medal.
