Awards & Recognition Form
Created in 2009, the M.J. Riggs Award recognizes those individuals or organizations whose contributions have had an impact upon a specific area, department, unit or goal of the Memorial Union. It is named for Morris John Riggs, the first Board President of the Memorial Union Corporation, who served from 1920-1925. He was described as "a large man of seemingly boundless enthusiasm and energy." He saw a bigger vision of the memorial building that was to serve campus and convinced those on campus to take on the challenge of raising on million dollars in 1920!
