Staying Active as a Non-Student Athlete

When I first transferred to William & Mary, a lot of my focus was on my academic work, community service and campus involvement. While I was focused on staying active in the community and on-campus, I almost forgot all about staying active in regard to my physical health! In my short time here, I discovered […]

Ted Dintersmith: Alumni Medallion Recipient 2017
Ted Dintersmith, Class of 1974 As a student, Ted Dintersmith ’74 completed two undergraduate honors theses: one in physics and the other in English literature. Now, with his support of William & Mary’s Honors Fellowships program, which funds more than 60 faculty- mentored student research projects each year, Dintersmith is ensuring current students have the same types of impac ul experiences he did. A er gradua ng from William & Mary and earning graduate degrees from Stanford, Dintersmith went on to a 25-year career in venture capital. Over the years, he saw that the people with the most impeccable academic track record o en thrived when employed by large structured companies, but oundered when they le to work at more innova ve startups. He also witnessed rsthand the impact innova on was having on the economy, including marginalizing rou ne jobs. Dintersmith began to sense that our educa on model was not preparing students for the crea ve world of innova on. In 2011, Dintersmith began focusing on the intersec on of innova on and educa on, leading to his funding and producing the documentary “Most Likely to Succeed,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Fes val in 2015. Since then, he’s traveled to schools across the na on — as well as the White House — to discuss the future of K-12 educa on. Dintersmith is currently wri ng a new book, Educa on Across America, repor ng on what he found in his travels. He previously co-authored a book with educa on expert Tony Wagner, Most Likely To Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innova on Era, which was the basis for the lm. Dintersmith is a former member of the Alumni Associa on Board of Directors and previously served on the College of William & Mary Founda on Board of Trustees. He delivered the 2014 keynote address at the Opening Convoca on ceremony and has also returned to campus to meet with School of Educa on faculty to discuss ideas on the future of educa on. In 2012, he served as part of the U.S. delega on at the United Na ons General Assembly, where he focused on global educa on and entrepreneurship. He supports a range of youth ini a ves, including The Future Project, NewTech Network, Avan Fellows and the African Leadership Academy.
Troy Keen: Alumni Medallion Recipient 2017
Troy Keen, Class of 1996 One of Troy Keen’s ’96 favorite places on campus is Zable Stadium. A er all, as an all-conference running back for the Tribe football team, he spent a lot of me there during his days as a student. For Keen, the opportunity to even a end William & Mary, where he was a business major and president of Kappa Alpha Psi, was because of the generosity of those who gave in support of athle c scholarships. Keen was among the rst in his family to a end college, and he said his experience at William & Mary changed the trajectory of his life. A er his me in Williamsburg, Keen moved to New York City to work in nance. It was another W&M alumnus, impressed with Keen’s outstanding work ethic, intelligence and concern for others, who helped him get hired at Merrill Lynch, something that Keen has not forgo en. Today, he guides current W&M students, par cularly African-American students, with academic and career decisions. Keen’s W&M involvement has remained uninterrupted since his days on campus and his passion for William & Mary has encouraged many other people to get involved as well. Keen has served as president of the Hulon Willis Associa on and the Charlo e Alumni Chapter, as a class ambassador, as well as on the board of directors of the Alumni Associa on and the Mason School of Business Founda on. In addi on, Keen remains an ardent supporter of Tribe Athle cs. Keen has had a successful career in investment banking at Wachovia and Wells Fargo, following his me at Merrill Lynch. At Wells Fargo, Keen was selected to be part of a small team charged with launching the real estate syndica ons group. In that role, he helped build that group into a top compe tor in the industry. He served as managing director in real estate debt capital markets for Wells Fargo before receiving a promo on. However, Keen turned it down to become an ordained Bap st minister. He says he answered a call to ministry because he realized that, much like playing football, he was a part of something that was bigger than him. Keen recently completed a master of divinity degree and is in the process of forming an outreach ministry for men in his community. Though s ll a fan of football and s ll working in nance, exercising the principles of his faith has now become his top priority.
Fred Malvin: Alumni Medallion Recipient 2017
Fred Malvin: Class of 1955 Fred Malvin ’55, M.S.T. ’58 likes to joke that he graduated from William & Mary in just two years. True, he a ended the university from 1956-58, but before that, the undefeated high school wrestler a ended Johns Hopkins University. Malvin went on to a end night school at the Norfolk Division of W&M (now Old Dominion University) before coming to the Williamsburg campus.

While s ll in the Navy, Malvin earned a master’s in personnel management from George Washington University and a master’s in interna onal rela ons from the Naval War College. A er leaving the Navy in 1980, Malvin decided to put his William & Mary accoun ng degree to good use. Even 25 years out of college, Malvin took the CPA exam and passed on the rst try. A er ve years with the rm Coopers and Lybrand, Malvin decided to start Malvin, Riggins & Co. with Joyce Riggins Scha er ’82 in 1986. Since then, under Malvin’s leadership, the company has expanded into Washington, D.C., North Carolina, Maryland and Pennsylvania and has been honored as one of Virginia’s top small businesses. Malvin says he a ended W&M before he was mature enough to appreciate it. But now he’s making up for that. He and his wife, Donna, have not missed a football game in years. Malvin is a current board member of the Tribe Club, member of the Order of the White Jacket, the Quarterback Club, the President’s Council and the Robert Boyle Legacy Society. In the past, he has served on the Olde Guarde Council and as treasurer of the Muscarelle Museum of Art Founda on. Malvin is also involved in many community organiza ons, such as the Boys & Girls Club of the Virginia Peninsula, Friends of the Homeless, the Watermen’s Museum, St. Stephens Church and Dream Catchers. Malvin has been a generous supporter of many William & Mary ini a ves, including the Alumni House expansion project.
Jeff Trammell: Alumni Medallion Recipient 2017
Jeff Trammell, Class of 1973 Je Trammell ’73 served as William & Mary Rector from 2011-13, making history as the rst openly gay board chair of a major public university in this country. But he says his proudest moment was ringing the Wren Bell a er presiding over his nal Board of Visitors mee ng and celebra ng the passage of the William & Mary Promise to ensure the university’s future. His team brought together alumni, faculty and community members to gure out what the university needed to have a long-term sustainable opera ng model. Trammell’s me with the Tribe began with a basketball scholarship. He served as captain of the men’s team and was selected as an all-conference honoree in 1972. O the court, Trammell was a history major and president of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. Post-gradua on, Trammell busied himself right away by pursuing a law degree at Florida State University. He would go on to serve on the sta of several members of the U.S. Congress and head of public a airs at Hill & Knowlton, before star ng his own public a airs rm, Trammell and Company, in 2001. The rm has many years of experience working with members of Congress, running poli cal campaigns and managing issues for major corpora ons and associa ons.

Not only does he mentor Washington, D.C., area students and alumni from the LGBT community, but he has served on the Annual Giving Board of Directors, as a class ambassador and was chair of his 40th Reunion gi commi ee. He was also instrumental in the crea on of the W&M Thomas Je erson Program in Public Policy in 1987 and served as its founding chair.
