ITA David A Benjamin Achievement Award Graphic-2016-03-17
 

This unique and prestigious award was created by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association to honor past participants in the world of collegiate tennis, who have achieved excellence in a chosen career (outside the world of professional tennis), and in doing so, have made a special contribution to society. The ITA David A Benjamin Achievement Award has been made possible by a most generous endowment donation by Margie and Stan Smith, with the support of Rolex and the International Tennis Hall of Fame (ITHF).
