The Clinton T. Sayers Award for Community Service at TCS

A MESSAGE FROM TCS ALUMNI, CLASS OF 1980

October 20, 2015

Dear Members of the TCS Community,

Thank you so much for visiting our webpage on the TCS website.

As some of you may know, an award was established at TCS twenty years ago called the “Clinton T. Sayers Award for Community Service” in honour of Clinton Sayers ’80 who died in a railway accident in 1993 while doing community aid work in Africa. This award was initiated in 1996 and funded by the class of 1980. It has become a prestigious and highly coveted award on campus, and is widely regarded as the highest expression of excellence and dedication to community service by a TCS student.

Community service and volunteerism have become huge parts of both the life and culture of the School. And for the last 20 years, the Sayers Award has sent the message to the students of TCS that contributions to community are enormously important – not only at TCS, but throughout life.

Against this backdrop, we hope that you might consider supporting a project in which the Sayers Award is enhanced and elevated in order to convey and reinforce the noble ideal of community service among the students of TCS. By doing this, we hope to make a positive contribution to both TCS and to the world beyond the School. Our goal is to raise $25,000 over the next few years. The money would be used for the following purposes:

  1. To construct a wall display for the award recipients' names in a prominent location. 
  2. To create a trust fund to support other community service events and activities among the student body.

For further background information, please find the following documents at the three links below:

  3. Letter dated July 29, 2015 from Zack Chauvin ’13 to all past winners of the Clinton Sayers Award.

Thank you for your consideration of this new initiative at TCS.

Sincerely,

John Belyea, George Davie, Greg Davies, Fraser Gamble, Taylor Hollander, Marc Lafontaine, Doug Macfarlane, Neil Stephenson & Ian Warren (Members of the Class of 1980)
