The May Jackson Award for Excellence Beyond
The May Jackson Award, initiated at the Annual Meeting in 1988, honors outstanding women who have contributed to the growth and continuity of the WGAM. They have set the standard of excellence for all of us to follow. The May Jackson committee and the WGAM Executive committee will not necessarily give this award annually, for this is a very special award for very special people – like its namesake, May Jackson. May Jackson passed away in August of the Year 2000. Her contributions to the WGAM and the developement of women’s golf in Massachusetts were numerous. The recipient of this award will receive a specially designed golf WGAM pin and her name will be added to a plaque which is displayed in the WGAM office.
