The John P. Curley '13 Award honors an outstanding volunteer who has committed both time and resources to advance the efforts of Boston College and especially the Athletic Department. Named for BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame member John P. Curley '13, the senior football manager for the 1912 Boston College Eagles and Graduate Manager of Athletics from 1929 to 1957 who is widely acknowledged as having brought Boston College Athletics into the modern era, this award fittingly recognizes his lifetime commitment to Boston College and the Athletic Department.
