In 2012, Mayland initiated the Founders Award that is a way for the college to express appreciation to those whose spirit and determination have shaped the historic, academic, and physical development of the college. As a Founder/Honorary Founder the person or institution has been instrumental in the development of Mayland, reflects the ideals of the original founders, has contributed time, talent or resources to the enhancement of the institution, has demonstrated over time an exemplary commitment to the college, and has demonstrated a passion for service to the institution.
