Fred Ellsworth Medallion

Alumni and friends gathered at Maceli’s Banquet Hall Sept. 9 to honor two outstanding Jayhawks with the Fred Ellsworth Medallion, the highest award presented to individuals by the Alumni Association.

This year’s recipients are Jill Sadowsky Docking, c’78, g’84, and Allyn Risley, e’72. Learn more about Docking and Risley here.

Fred Ellsworth, c’22, led the Association staff as executive secretary from 1924 to 1963. Since 1975 the Fred Ellsworth Medallion has honored individuals “who have provided unique and significant service to the University.” The recipients are recognized at a special dinner in conjunction with the fall Board of Directors meeting and introduced during the home football game that weekend.
