The Alumni Service Award
Eleanor Shriver Magee
As a student-athlete, Eleanor Shriver Magee ’93 pushed herself and her teammates in every game and every practice. As a head women’s lacrosse and soccer coach, she taught her players to do the same. As an alumna, she has continued to live with that unreserved commitment. Before joining Austin Pharmacy & Medical Supply in March 2022, Eleanor ran ESM Good Works, a philanthropy consulting firm she founded in 2013. She has also served in many volunteer roles, including as vice chair of the Board of Trustees for the Maryland Center for History & Culture.
In her service to her alma mater, Shriver Magee has wholeheartedly given her time, talent, and treasure. As a former alumni chair of the Washington College Choptank Alumni Chapter, Shriver Magee organized events and brought the College to its neighboring counties on the Eastern Shore. She opened her home on numerous occasions in support of Washington College, welcoming alumni, prospective students, and faculty. She serves on the George Washington Legacy Society and is a Watershed program volunteer.
As a longtime member of the Hall of Fame Committee, Shriver Magee’s infectious enthusiasm and unstoppable energy were evident at every meeting. With her institutional knowledge, she has helped the committee keep its traditions alive while updating the experience to appeal to all generations. When it was time for a women’s varsity athletic field renovation, Shriver Magee gave generously and encouraged her family and friends to do the same. Shriver Field is now a part of the Washington College athletic complex. She had many wins on that field, including a marriage proposal.
We are happy Eleanor chose our team. Her ongoing efforts have ensured Washington College students continue to have everything they need to achieve their goals.
