Shane Williamson '88 Receives Distinguished Alumni Award

On the morning of Monday, December 9, Shane Williamson ’88 was presented with the Distinguished Alumni Award, becoming the nineteenth individual to receive the honor. Mr. Williamson was recognized at a packed campus assembly with family, friends, fellow alumni, students and faculty.

The award was created by the SCDS Alumni Association Board in 1998 to honor an alumnus or alumna who has demonstrated the highest standards of achievement, leadership, and service and who represents the enduring principles of The Savannah Country Day School.

Mr. Williamson is Principal of Williamson Williamson Inc., a Toronto-based architecture and design studio that he founded with his partner, Betsy Williamson, in 2007. Shane is also a tenured Associate Professor and Director of the Master of Architecture Program at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto.

About his time at Country Day, Williamson says, “I’ve always reflected so positively on the foundation that Country Day gave me. It’s the bellwether that was set for my future endeavors in school, including my time at Harvard. Looking back, I have nothing but positive memories of my academic experience at Country Day.”
