Aloian Award Winners 2014

Mathilde Montpetit and Rob Gunzenhauser

Seniors Rob Gunzenhauser ’15, of Adams House, and Mathilde Montpetit ’15, of Winthrop House, received the Harvard Alumni Association’s (HAA) annual David ’49 and Mimi Aloian Memorial Scholarships at the fall meeting of the HAA’s board of directors. The awards, named for the master and co-master of Quincy House in the 1980s (David Aloian was also HAA executive director), recognize exemplary leadership in enhancing quality of life in the Houses. 

Rob Gunzenhauser, of Palos Verdes Estates, California, is co-chair of the Adams House Committee. He spearheaded the renovation of the House’s cardio and weight rooms, working with fellow students and House administrators to complete the project, and organized an inter-House August event, College-wide Field Day.

Mathilde Montpetit, of Boston, co-chairs the Winthrop House Committee and organized the Lion Buddies program (Winthrop’s shield boasts a lion rampant), which connects incoming freshmen to upperclassmen in the House. In addition, Montpetit coordinated a Housing Day Stein Club with a live band, which drew an unusually large crowd of almost 300 students, across all class years.
