The Brigadier General William W. Spruance recognizes individual contributions, service, and devotion to the NGEF mission — telling the Guard story.
Brigadier General William W. Spruance served on the Board of the National Guard Educational Foundation and was a dedicated supporter of NGEF. He enthusiastically donated time, energy, and funds to the telling of the Guard story. His devotion to NGEF inspired us to name the award in his honor.
The first recipient of the Brigadier General William W. Spruance Legacy Award is Major General retired Gus L. Hargett. MG Hargett and his wife Shirley have been tireless supporters of NGEF and its mission, donating 5 Legions de Lafayette at a total sum of $50,000.
