Business students receive Fanning Scholarships

Published: September 1, 2005 / Author: Meghan Information

Stephanie Madia and Brian Mattes, both senior finance and business economics majors from Wexford, Pa., and Larksville, Pa., respectively, have been named the 2005 recipients of Eugene D. Fanning Scholarships at the University of Notre Dame.

Madia and Mattes were selected by faculty of Notre Dame’s Fanning Center for Business Communication for their excellence in communication skills and exemplary personal characteristics. The scholarships include a $3,500 credit to each student’s tuition account and a commemorative pewter plate.

Established in 1995 in honor of the late Gene Fanning, the scholarships are funded by donations from members of the University’s advisory council for the Mendoza College of Business. Fanning was a Chicago businessman and investor who taught business communication courses as a guest instructor in the college from 1989 to 1995. A 1953 Notre Dame graduate, he also was a benefactor of the University and an advisory council member.
