Nine MBA students receive $10,000 Hawes Scholarships

The Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University announced nine master of business administration candidates, including two international students, as its 2007 Hawes Scholars. The honor, which carries a cash award of $10,000, is the highest distinction given to MBA students at the school.

“These scholars were identified as being outstanding examples of what BYU’s MBA program is all about,” said MBA faculty director James Stice.“Of course, they have done well academically. But more importantly, they have exemplified the spirit of BYU’s MBA program.They have given when it wasn’t required, they have gone the extra mile when no one was watching and they have influenced many people for good.”

Award candidates are nominated and selected by students and faculty. Candidates are selected based on academic performance, leadership maturity and a commitment to high ethical standards.

This year’s winners are Diego Carroll, Orem, Utah; Michael Conrad, Lake Oswego, Ore.; Marco Gaertner, São Paulo, Brazil; Makoto Ishizaka, Tokyo; Scott Jolley, Mesa, Ariz., Rodrigo Ribeiro, São Paulo, Brazil; Taber Rigg, Anchorage, Alaska; Ryan Stevens, Gilbert, Ariz.; and Jennifer Wagner, Oklahoma City.

“I congratulate these fine men and women for earning such a distinct honor,” says Ned C. Hill, Marriott School dean. “They embody the professional skills, leadership and service orientation that we highly prize.”

Named for successful corporate executive Rodney A. Hawes Jr. and his wife, Beverly, the award was created in 1998 to recognize the accomplishments of graduating MBA students. The Hawes Scholar award is one of many initiatives made possible by the Hawes Endowment, a gift of more than $2 million used to facilitate the growth and enhancement of the Marriott School’s nationally ranked MBA program.

Hawes, a Baker Scholar from the Harvard Business School, and his wife wanted to create a tradition at the Marriott School that recognizes and rewards excellence among students entering the business world.
