Each year the Harvard Admissions Office honors some of its most loyal and longtime volunteers in schools committee work all over the globe. The Hiram Hunn Award recognizes alumni and alumnae who have been especially effective in their interviewing and club work and for their unusual longevity. The contributions these women and men make to the admissions process are invaluable.
The award is named in honor of Hiram S. Hunn, Class of 1921, who was active in schools committee work for 55 years — 30 in Iowa and 25 in Vermont.
