Past winners of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce Prince B. Woodard Leadership Award created an endowment to support leadership awards for University of Mary Washington students. Under the leadership of 2014 award winner, Ted Hontz, Prince B. Woodard award winners and families of deceased winners and friends participated in the initial funding of the endowment to support this prestigious student award at UMW.
The Prince B. Woodard Leadership Award is named after a man who was revered by the community. Prince B. Woodard was President of Mary Washington College from 1974 to 1982 when he died at a relatively young age. Dr. Woodard made a great impression with his vision, integrity and extraordinary service. Each year, the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce presents the Prince B. Woodard Leadership Award to an individual that exhibits those same characteristics.
