Heritage Medallion

The North America Wales Foundation Heritage Medallion was established in 1987 to recognize an individual of Welsh ancestry for services to the Welsh-American community or whose prominence has brought credit to the Welsh-American community.


Since its inception it has been awarded twenty-seven times.  Recipients have included individuals, couples and one society.

Many were selected, not because they were famous, but because they exhibited that special combinatin of talent, vision, scope, leadership and hard work that fosters Welsh-American culture.
