W&L’s Leonard Satterwhite Receives Admissions Award Leonard Satterwhite recently won the John A. "Jack" Blackburn Award for Ethics in College Admission.
Leonard Satterwhite, senior associate dean of admissions at Washington and Lee University, recently won the John A. “Jack” Blackburn Award for Ethics in College Admission.
The Blackburn Award was established by the Potomac and Chesapeake Association for College Admission Counseling (PCACAC) in 2010 to honor the late Jack Blackburn, longtime dean of admissions at the University of Virginia. The award recognizes a member of the admissions profession who represents “commitment to the high ethical standards of college admission through sustained active involvement in the profession and dedication to promoting equal access to higher education for all students.”
Satterwhite has served seven institutions and provided leadership to many college admissions governing bodies throughout his 48-year career.
“The work of inclusion and access has been a lifelong pursuit,” Satterwhite said. “Developing programs and energizing a community to value diversity and inclusion is hard work. The students and parents I have worked with over the years have given me hope for our future generations.”
