Philip Butler Smith Award for Exemplary Service to CAIS
This award was established in memory of Philip Butler Smith, a CAIS parent whose life tragically ended in a cross-country biking accident. Father of Victor Smith ’03, Philip was the ultimate volunteer, involved in every aspect of CAIS life from docent tours to cooking his famous Thanksgiving turkey.
Every year, the faculty and staff members nominate parent volunteers who have exemplified extraordinary spirit and effort as volunteer through his or her work at CAIS. A committee of staff reviews the nominations and selects an award recipient.
