Tim Day ’55 has been awarded The John A. Lejeune Recognition for Exemplary Leadership by The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. Each year, the Marine Corps presents a series of awards to both Marines and civilian community members, recognizing their exemplary work in advancing and preserving Marine Corps history. The honoree this year is the Chairman and CEO of Bar-S Foods Company, Mr. Timothy T. Day. The prestigious award was presented during a special ceremony at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on April 21, 2012. This recognition was provided by Founder Patrick Brent in the form of a statuette of General Lejeune that is the same size and weight as an Oscar and a World War 1 Springfield 1903 Rifle. The criteria for this recognition is: “Demonstrated leadership in their chosen profession, appointed, or elected position that is clearly exemplary and worthy of emulation. The recipient must epitomize the core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment; and practice the leadership traits and principles ascribed to by the United States Marine Corps.”
