History

The Student Leadership Recognition Banquet is an annual event that celebrates and recognizes the achievements of Western's student leaders through a festive banquet and awards ceremony attended by students, parents, faculty and staff alike. 

The banquet was first held in 1985 and has grown in attendance and significance ever since.  Held at first on campus and then at various locations in the Greater Danbury area, the last few years have seen it held consistently at the elegant Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury.  In 2011 and 2013 the banquet was held at The Matrix Conference and Banquet Center in the former Union Carbide building in Danbury but it returned to the Amber Room in 2014.

The event is held annually, usually in early May, and has grown from just a few to as many as 500 guests at one time.  Every year two members of each student organization are invited to the banquet along with the organization's advisor.  Additional club members and parents may also be invited at cost and will be sent an invitation upon request.
