Congratulations to graduate student Josh Moore and undergraduate student Abigail McIntyre, who were selected as winners of the David Nathan Meyerson Prize for Leadership & Giving.
The competition, held October 6 at the Skyline Club in downtown Indianapolis, was in honor of David Nathan Meyerson, exemplifying those who are deeply committed to helping people in need.
To be considered for The David Nathan Meyerson Prize for Leadership & Giving, applicants were chosen through a 700 word essay contest: “What does it mean to help people in need?”
Ten finalists were then presented to a panel of judges and the public in a 5x5 competition - 5 minutes and 5 slides. Two winners were chosen: one graduate and one undergraduate student.
Moore and McIntyre will receive $2,500 each for domestic travel, lodging and expenses to be used for a traveling scholarship of nonprofit exploration. Each will also receive $1,800 to grant to 1-3 registered nonprofit(s).
About David Nathan Meyerson
A Cornell University alumnus, graduating magna cum laude, and a master's with honors in logotherapy from Hardin-Simmons University, David Nathan Meyerson was a therapist, talented writer, and translator who died before he was able to show the world his full potential. He was extraordinary, affecting the lives of many people. He supported and gave a voice to people who had lost hope. He amused; he enraged; he cajoled; he provoked; he helped; he challenged; he comforted; he entertained.
