The William Gaston Alumni Award recognizes outstanding service by undergraduate alumni who have exhibited leadership across many activities such as alumni clubs, class programs and/or participation in other school activities. A maximum of five awards are presented each year.
The award is named for the first student to enroll in Georgetown College. As a member of the United States Congress, William Gaston obtained Georgetown's charter as an educational institution. He later served as Justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina. He is famous for delivering a classic oration during a Constitutional Convention in that state which resulted in the removal of religious discrimination against members of his faith. He is admired for his personal integrity and his advocacy for religious freedom in the United States.
Curtis practices in the firm’s Commercial Litigation Group and has more than 14 years of litigation and dispute resolution experience. In addition to a robust legal practice, he is active internally with the firm’s Ethics Committee and the Atlanta Recruiting Committee, and externally with the Georgetown University Alumni Association, by serving as the current Parliamentarian of the GUAA Board of Governors and on the Board of the Georgetown Club of Georgia. Curtis is also actively involved with the University of Virginia Law School Foundation; his former school, The Norfolk Academy; and his children’s school, Pace Academy.
He will be presented with the Gaston Award at a special Georgetown University Alumni Association reception on February 8, 2013 in Washington DC.
