Norman J. Kallaus Scholarship Winner Announced

Tippie marketing major Anna Vonderhaar has won the Norman J. Kallaus Spring 2021 scholarship. This award, established in 2020, is named in honor of Dr. Kallaus, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship. Dr. Kallaus was an advocate for strong communication skills in Tippie students and spent his career pursuing that priority. BCaP students who display exemplary communication skills are invited by their instructors to apply for this scholarship each fall and spring. This semester, the contestants each submitted a 90 second “elevator pitch” to a company of their choice. The Frank Center congratulates Anna on receiving this prestigious award.
