Unbridled Spirit Award
The Courier Program Unbridled Spirit Award is given annually to a former Courier who has carried the torch of Mary Breckinridge beyond the mountains, perpetuating the mission and spirit of Frontier in their own lives. The criteria for this award include dedication to serving others; ongoing, longstanding stewardship of Frontier; and demonstration of personal conviction, courage, and a zest for adventure.
The inaugural award was given to its first recipient concurrent to the release of our book about the history of the Courier Program: Unbridled Service: Growing Up and Giving Back as a Frontier Nursing Service Courier, 1928-2010.
