In-Name Awards

Serendipity and Fortuna have smiled my way, allowing me to throw open doors for those who are deserving but often unseen and unheard.

Recognition and resources affirm, support, and help us leap to the next stepping stone. With substantial endowments for undergrad scholarship at the Ohio State University and Modesto Junior College, as well as perennial awards for best essay, leadership, creative writing, comics, and emerging creators, I strive to give back and pay it forward.
