Martha Shaw was recognized for her warmth, dedication and passion for the College.
Shaw is a true leader who always has a smile and is ready to take on any challenge brought her way. The volunteer veteran is the mother of four Old Boys: David ’98, Christopher ’99, Stephen ’01 and Nicholas ’09. Among her myriad contributions to College life, Martha and husband David co-chaired the 2007 Blue Ties auction and gala which raised $1.5 million to fund the William P. Wilder ’40 Arena & Sports Complex.
“Martha worked diligently and almost daily for the two-year period leading up to the gala,” says UCC parent and volunteer Lesley Alboini, who nominated Shaw for the award. “She led her large team with skill, tact and diplomacy to achieve such positive results. Her enthusiasm and commitment were always visible.”
Shaw received the Harold A. D. Roberts Circle Award in 2009 for service. Her countless commitments also include numerous Parents’ Organization appointments, co-chairing Festive Marketplace, and Grandparents’ Day and Association Day positions.
“Few have given so much to the College for so many years,” says Alboini.
