Maroon Spotlight

Call for Nominations - Deadline Extended to Feb. 6!

In celebration of Roanoke College's 175th anniversary in 2017, you can help identify Maroons to be in the spotlight. Roanoke College will recognize and honor members of the College community who have made a significant impact in areas such as the sciences, military, education, religion, government service, innovations, and more.

Because the goal is to recognize Maroons throughout Roanoke College's 175 years, nominees may be living or deceased. For example, Maroon Spotlight for Government Service would not be complete without the inclusion of Henry Fowler '29, who served as President John F. Kennedy's Undersecretary of the Treasury and President Lyndon Johnson's Secretary of the Treasury.

  • online at 
  • by email 
  • via snail mail to Maroon Spotlight 175, Roanoke College, 221 College Lane, Salem, VA 24153.
