Tillman Honors

Tillman Honors celebrates Pat’s legacy and belief that we should always strive to be part of something bigger than ourselves by recognizing leaders for their remarkable civic contributions, extraordinary fortitude and spirit of service. The Champion and Make Your Mark Awards are presented during Tillman Honors.

The Champion Award celebrates Pat’s legacy and belief that we should always strive to be part of something bigger than ourselves, by recognizing an individual for remarkable civic contributions, extraordinary fortitude, and spirit of service. We were honored to present the 2018 Champion Award to Kamau Murray, CEO and Founder of XS Tennis & Education Foundation.

The Make Your Mark Award celebrates Pat’s legacy and belief that we should always strive to be part of something bigger than ourselves, by recognizing a Tillman Scholar for remarkable civic contributions, extraordinary fortitude, and spirit of service.
