Dorothy Porter Service Award
The Dorothy Porter Service Award was established in honor of our beloved long- time teacher who was a part of St. Martin’s from its beginning. Even after her retirement in 1988, Mrs. Porter was actively involved in the school. She exemplified grace, commitment, historical love for the school and an enduring spirit that is admired by everyone who is a part of St. Martin’s. With the Dorothy Porter Service Award, we honor the late Mrs. Porter and her commitment to St. Martin’s. The award’s recipient must be an exemplary St. Martin’s citizen who has consistently served the school with time, talent and treasures and who represents the motto, philosophy and mission of St. Martin’s – faith, scholarship, service.

Martin de Tours Award
The Martin de Tours Award is named for the patron saint of our school. He is best known for his ability to find God in the simple joys of life. There is a well-known story in which Martin met a shivering beggar at the gates of the city of Amiens in Gaul. Moved with compassion, he divided his coat into two parts and gave one to the poor man. Martin de Tours exemplified the aspect of service that we value so highly at St. Martin’s Episcopal School.
This award is given annually to an exemplary citizen who has consistently served his/her community and has demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards in his/her chosen field of endeavor.
