STG named awards are created by donors in honor or in memory of a person, family, or organization. Established and funded by individuals, companies, civic groups and foundations, these awards – like all STG awards – benefit Staples High School graduates with demonstrated financial need. Some awards are established by their donors to be directed towards students with specific accomplishments, interests, or academic pursuits. Named awards are either endowed to fund grants in perpetuity, or funded annually with an initial minimum commitment of 4 years.
The below list of awards (listed alphabetically by last name) is a testament to the people, stories, and history of the incredible Westport community we call home.
