Caggiano Award

The Caggiano Memorial Alumni Award is presented during the graduation ceremony each May in memory of James Caggiano, a graduate of the Class of 1965. It honors a graduate or former student of the Spartanburg Day School who has not considered graduation as the end of their time at SDS, but has come back to make a significant contribution to the school. These award winners embody what it means to be "forever a Griffin."
