Ames Scholars Dinner 2011

Since 1955, The John Worthington Ames Scholarship has provided one student annually at the Boston Architectural College with $10,500 to pursue self-directed design study through travel. In January of 2011, the BAC proudly hosted a reunion to celebrate accomplishments of past Ames Scholars, reconnect them to the Institutional community, and discuss the future of the award.

Eighteen John Worthington Ames Scholars gathered with members of the BAC board, staff and college leadership to share the unique experiences they had as recipients. Board Chair Russ Feldman welcomed guests to their table at Upstairs on the Square in Cambridge, MA where the alumni scholars sat interspersed with their BAC hosts, including Bernard Goba, AIA, DFA honoris causa, Secretary of the John Worthington Ames Scholarship and Brian Anderson, Chair of the Honors and Awards Committee.
