The Savannah Country Day School

Service Through Knowledge and Character

Alumni Awards

Each year, The Savannah Country Day School honors an outstanding alumnus/alumna with The Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognizes someone who has provided extraordinary service to the community or who has achieved outstanding personal, business, or professional success. 

This year, Country Day honored alumnus Bud Mingledorff '64 with the 2018 Distinguished Alumni Award. Mr. Mingledorff is widely regarded as a business leader with a track record of giving back to organizations that can make a difference. He is a true reflection of our school’s motto of Service through knowledge and character.

Congratulations, Mr. Mingledorff, and thank you for taking the time to speak with our Upper School students this morning on the importance of showing gratitude throughout future life experiences.
