30 Years of Watzek Award Winners
On June 3, more than two dozen past recipients of the College’s Aubrey R. Watzek Award gathered to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of the event. The award honors citizens who pioneered in their respective fields and who enriched the Pacific Northwest, particularly Oregon. Nearly 200 individuals have received Watzek Awards since Lewis & Clark College’s Board of Trustees established the honor in 1973.
