The Myser Family Foundation Teaching Excellence Award


John T. Myser, Class of 1952, believes that his personal development, as well as that of his classmates, was powerfully influenced by the excellence of the teachers with whom he came in contact while a cadet at Saint Thomas Military Academy.

He created the Myser Family Award to acknowledge the achievements of current and former faculty members who are identified by alumni as excellent role models and as having a life-long positive influence on the lives of the alumni.

A plaque and cash prize is presented to a retired or current faculty member on an annual basis.  It is the preference of John Myser that the recipients be free to use the prize as they wish.

There are two prizes awarded based on polling from a group of current faculty members, parents, students and select alumni.  There are two prizes awarded based on polling of the current reunion classes.
