The Mann Center’s Frances Marlin Mann Awards for Leadership and Character are given annually to outstanding student leaders from across the University. Students are nominated by deans and other upper-level administrators, with preference given to rising seniors or graduate students who have completed a significant portion of their course of study.
Honorees will be selected for their consistent leadership and strong character, based on attributes such as humility, courage, self-control, and justice. Up to eleven students may be selected each year, with one chosen by a selection committee to also receive the Joe McDade Scholarship.
The ideal nominee for the Joe McDade Scholarship will demonstrate a life and character lived in the spirit of Christ; a contribution to the overall betterment and wellbeing of the University; participation in a wide range of campus life; leadership ability; an embodiment of the overall goals, mission, and spirit of the University; and commitment to the long range development and wellbeing of the University.
