Paul N. Hunt Citizenship Award
This memorial award is meant to honor the strong virtue and values of the man for whom this award was named.
Thus, the individual who qualifies for this award "has unselfishly contributed his time and energy to help others beyond the playing field". The term "citizenship" epitomizes those character traits that Paul or his Cornell name, "Tiny", possessed – duty, honor, integrity, respect for Godliness, service to his fellow men and women, and love for America.
It was Paul's philosophy that athletics should not be perceived as the "be all, end all", but should be a part of the development of a person's character. This philosophy is the precursor of present day Cornell and Ivy League athletic programs. It enables a student to integrate the lessons learned in teamwork through athletics and to transmute those same skills and sensitivities toward contributing to the betterment of the community. It is that kind of a spirit that Paul would want to be remembered.
