McKeen Center Honors Volunteers, Pays Tribute to Leslie Shaw

Leslie Shaw (1955-2012)

The McKeen Center’s annual awards ceremony, which every year recognizes a few Bowdoin community members for their volunteer service, was extra special this year.

The final award that President Barry Mills presented at the ceremony, which was held last week to honor campus members for their community service, was for Leslie Shaw, a beloved faculty member who is missed.

John Cross ’76 received the award on behalf of his late wife, who passed away unexpectedly last August. Shaw taught anthropology at Bowdoin for 14 years and contributed greatly to the Native American culture on campus.
