November 5, 2010

John L. Colley Jr. and Dr. Richard L Guerrant both received 2010 Thomas Jefferson Awards at the University of Virginia.

The Thomas Jefferson Award honors University of Virginia facility members who exemplify the ideals of Thomas Jefferson through influence, character and work.

Colley received the award for excellence in service, which the McConnell Foundation has sponsored since 1955.

The selection committee chose Guerrant to be the recipient of the award for excellence in scholarship, which the Alumni Board of Trustees of the University of Virginia Endowment Fund Inc. established in 2009.

Colley has been a member of the Darden School of Business faculty for 43 years.

Guerrant serves as director of the Center for Global Health.

The awards were presented at Fall Convocation which was held in the John Paul Jones Arena.
