Loudon Owen ’76 is the deserving recipient of the 2017 John D. Stevenson Award.
Owen’s formal volunteer roles include: six years on the board of governors; co-chair of the Think Ahead campaign; and member of both the Association Council and the boarding task force. The prominent venture capitalist has been an active mentor to many Old Boys over the years and regularly meets with them during his travels.
“UCC is a seal of approval for me,” says Owen. “Old Boys have the same sensibility, ambition, global perspective and get-it-done attitude.”
This must be why Owen has supported so many Old Boys over the years. For a great example of this, read an Old Times article about Owen here.
“Loudon Owen is well-deserving of the John Stevenson Award,” says UCC parent and Old Boy Rich Elder ’78, who nominated Owen for the honour.
“As an Old Boy and past parent, he has tirelessly given back to our school community, serving as co-chair of the most successful fundraising campaign in school history. With his charismatic energy and inexhaustible drive, Loudon continues to be involved with the College and the mentorship of Old Boys, to the benefit of everyone.”
Owen will receive the award at Founder’s Dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 15. Tickets can be purchased here.
The UCC Association Council established the John D. Stevenson Award in 1993 to recognize individuals who’ve provided outstanding volunteer service to the College over a number of years. It recognizes the exceptional contributions of John D. Stevenson ’47. Nominations are elicited annually from all members of the College community.
