MacMorran Scholars are named in honor of John F. MacMorran, who was Head of School from 1971–1982 and an educational leader committed to academic excellence. Tilton developed this program to recognize the scholarship and effort of Tilton students who achieve at the highest level. Students who meet the following criteria are recognized as MacMorran Scholars and have their names placed on a plaque in the main lobby of Plimpton Hall. These scholars have reached a high level of scholarship, effort and a commitment to meeting responsibilities, and they demonstrate the behavior of “good citizens” of the community. It’s the hope that all students at Tilton School will pursue these ideals.
