A Woodward Academy Governing Board member for 25 years, Mr. Colquitt led the groups responsible for changing the school’s name from GMA to Woodward Academy and for changing the school’s curriculum to phase out the military program. He established the Woodward Governing Board while serving as Chairman of the Executive Committee. In 1962, Mr. Colquitt provided leadership for a major capital construction effort that resulted in the creation of Colquitt Stadium. He also was honored by the naming of the Colquitt Rifle Team and the Colquitt Student Hall. In 2004, the James A. Colquitt Scholarship Fund was established to recognize his significant impact on the Academy. Each year, the overall MVP of the school’s football program receives an award named in Mr. Colquitt’s honor.
