Under the leadership of incoming EAB president Doug Shipman 95C, the board wil continue its focus this year on Emory's scholarship endowment initiative, increased alumni visibility on campus and in the regions, and building a leadership pipeline that will ensure the continued success and growth of the university, while reflecting the diversity of its student and alumni bodies. 

The Emory Alumni Board Leadership Scholarship, created in 2007, recognizes students whose actions, beliefs, and passions have improved the community in the arts or sciences, in academic or extracurricular pursuits, or through mentorship, social outreach, or other avenues.

The 2014–2015 recipients are Lurit Bepo 16M, a student in the School of Medicine and president of Emory’s Student National Medical Association, which focuses on mentoring and supporting under-represented minority medical and premedical students in local communities; and Jessica Hirst 15N, an undergraduate in the School of Nursing and a leader with Best Buddies, an international organization that aims to form close peer friendships with individuals who have developmental or intellectual disabilities.
