Brandon Gollhofer of Fort Worth, Texas, received the Harvey J. Ablah Award, and Brandi Boese of La Crosse, Kan., received the Leona J. Ablah Award at the Spring 2016 Undergraduate Commencement ceremony.

The awards are presented each year to a graduating male and female student who exemplify the spirit of Newman and show great promise to make a strong and positive contribution to society. Each student receives a $2,500 award.

The awards were established by Fran and Geri (Ablah) Jabara to honor the memory of Geri’s parents and to perpetuate their vision of entrepreneurism and the American dream.
