2003 Winners

The 2003 winners were selected by a committee composed of John LaFreniere, chair of the Study Grant Program, Dr. Ernest and Dr. Margaret Muntz, Sarah-Theresa Murakami, Kathy Luttmer and Father Christopher Armstrong. The committee made the decision to split the $2000 award between two equally deserving individuals from the University of Cincinnati, Professor John McNay, and Graduate Student Ran Jan Ramnath.

Professor McNay traveled to London and continued researching Dean Acheson's work with his British counterparts during World War II. Ran Jan Ramnath visited Johannesburg, South Africa where he studied the development and planning issues of that city and related them to similar problems currently facing Cincinnati.

John LaFreniere presented the awards at the ESU Sunday Brunch held at Coldstream Country Club on June 22.
