The Spirit of Candlelight Award

Rocky Mountain College has celebrated Candlelight Dinner every winter since 1910, when students first arrived at the campus below the Rims to find that the electricity had not been turned on, so they had to eat their first meal by the light of donated candles. Over the years, this tradition has served as a reminder to all of the trials and tribulations Rocky Mountain College has overcome only through the hard work and generosity of the community.

The Spirit of Candlelight Award is given annually to an individual or group that exemplifies the enduring spirit of stewardship and service in pursuit of excellence that is at the heart of the Candlelight tradition.

The contributions made by the honoree(s) to the Rocky Mountain College community should demonstrate the selflessness, dedication, and forward focus that were central to the first Candlelight Dinner. Recipients need not be Rocky Mountain College Alumni.
