On Wednesday, September 15, Malvern Preparatory School unveiled The James H. Stewart IV Wall of Distinction during a school-wide ceremony. The Wall of Distinction is displayed in Malvern’s St. Augustine Center for Social Impact because the building provides a location and programming for students to solve problems affecting humanity now and in the future.
The award is named to honor the legacy of Jim Stewart P’86’94 PT Hon, a member of the Wall of Distinction Committee who passed away in August of 2020, prior to the announcement of the inaugural class. Stewart joins an illustrious list of philanthropists, leaders, and exemplary figures, a group of individuals that he himself played a major role in selecting, including:
Alan and Yvonne Ameche-Davis P’71’72’76’77
Brigadier General Curtis A. Buzzard ’88
Joan Downs P’96’96’98
Charles “Chic” Kelly ’88
James Murray P’88 GP’16
Don O’Neill ’57 TE
The honorees are wonderful examples of selfless service to others and to the Common Good, which demonstrates the Augustinian Core Values of Truth, Unity, and Love – the hallmarks of the Malvern Prep experience. The James H. Stewart IV Wall of Distinction provides our community with role models to be celebrated, honored, and recognized so that our students know what positive leadership looks like and what social impact means.
