The Simons Medal is named for Albert Simons, who pioneered the teaching of art at the College of Charleston in 1924. Years later, a general department of fine arts was established and grew to become the School of the Arts, which currently offers studies in seven major areas. The Simons Medal honors individuals who have excelled in one or more of the areas in which Simons excelled. Prior Simons Medal recipients include His Royal Highness Prince Charles – The Prince of Wales, Mayor Joseph P. Riley, John D. Milner, Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater–Zyberk, and Allan Greenberg.
