Alumni Medalists

Why we're all proud to be Maroons

The Roanoke College Medal recognizes outstanding alumni whose professional accomplishments, community engagement and service to the College represent the ideals of leadership, integrity and citizenship that we, as Maroons, hold dear.

The medal is a bronze cast of the College seal. It symbolizes the lifetime accomplishments of the champions of Roanoke College—her alumni.
