The award is only presented if the Selection Committee determines that there is a suitable candidate for this honor.
The award is presented during Homecoming festivities. The recipient is announced at the BCD Alumni Association's Annual Business Meeting/Reception. The recipient is listed, along with past recipients, on the association's Wall of Honor.
