The Don Norton Memorial Award was provided by the Class of 1942 to honour a classmate and as a memorial to all Mount Allison University students who gave their lives in the Second World War, 1939-1945.
Donald Blair Norton ('42) of Milltown, NB, “while a student at Mount Allison exemplified, by his rare ability and character, those qualities of scholarship, athletics and student government of which a university may be justly proud.”
He was an outstanding student, winner in numerous track and field events, President of the Student Union, and a leader in various university activities.
A miniature of this Memorial is awarded annually to the graduating male student at Mount Allison University who, during his final year, makes the greatest overall contribution to university life.
It seems fitting that Don Norton’s name has been given to an award for which, in his final year, he would have been the outstanding candidate.
Fifth year students who are candidates for degrees are eligible; students who finish courses after graduation to complete degree requirements are ineligible. Consideration is given to previous years’ involvement in university life.
