Charles Beckwith was nominated by his friend, Brian Ellwood.
"Charles is a longtime friend, which gives me an intimate perspective on his passion, sacrifice, and dedication to the students lucky enough to enjoy his tutelage," said Ellwood. "He is a consummate educator in the sense that he wants his students to develop and grow in all facets of their person: knowledge, spirit, and wisdom. I respect his role in their lives as he actively engages students on a daily basis in a way that is holistic and engaging across disciplines. Charles is a truly remarkable leader of young people; he is making our community better, one student at a time."
