  • An individual who has served the RISD or the local RISD community, especially in service to children, and whose virtues or characteristics will serve as role models to students, staff and the community, or
  • A district property donor or benefactor or his/her family members.

Completed nomination forms should include biographical data to support the nomination, information about the significant contribution or representation the person has made to education or to the local community, rationale for recommendation, and a list of family members in the area if the person to be so honored is no longer living. The committee or Board shall not consider petitions.
