Hahn receives awards at Hope

Cara Hahn, a Hope College senior from Rockford, received the Laszlo Tokes Award and the Wall Street Journal Award during the annual honors convocation on Thursday, April 23, 2009.

The Laszlo Tokes Award is a cash award given to two rising seniors for writing the best essays addressing a current issue or world situation from a Christian perspective. Laszlo Tokes, in whose honor the award is named, was a pastor in the Hungarian Reformed Church. His commitment to Christian faith and calling played a pivotal role in sparking the demonstration that led to the downfall of the communist regime in Romania in 1989. This award was made possible by the vision and donation of a Hope alumna who would like to remain anonymous. It is facilitated by the CrossRoads Project.

The Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award of a one-year subscription to the Journal and an individual medallion is presented to the student selected by the economics, management and accounting faculty on the basis of superior performance in the department.
