DISCOVERY AWARDS

Every year, the Discovery Award is presented to extraordinary individuals who are builders, creators, and leaders in their fields and communities.

It recognizes the importance of their work and their commitment to modeling what it means to lead with purpose and integrity for the next generation. We proudly celebrate them—and we celebrate their legacies.
