Humanitarian Award winners named
Emory College students Zain Ahmed, Alexander Kappus and Stephanie LaPointe; Anneliese Millones of the School of Medicine and Benish Shah of the School of Law are the University’s 2008 Humanitarian Award winners.

The honor recognizes students who embody a spirit of volunteerism and sense of community, both on and off campus. Peers and faculty nominate students who demonstrate honesty, integrity, responsibility and a sense of community, perform special acts of courage and friendship; and commit an unusual amount of time and energy to service for others.

The community is invited to attend the reception that follows the award ceremony on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 8 p.m. in the Winship Ballroom.

Luther E. Smith, associate dean, faculty development and professor of church and community in the Candler School of Theology, will give the address.
