The Aloian Memorial Scholars
The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) has awarded Jorge Campos ’21, of Los Angeles, and Reeda Iqbal ’21, of Brentwood, New York, the 2020 David and Mimi Aloian Memorial Scholarships for enriching the quality of life in their Houses.
From Housing Day onward, Campos has forged relationships across class years and diverse groups at Currier House, forming signature “Currier Cinema,” “Currier Teatime,” and “Study Nights” events, along with rallying House-mates around intramural sports. As the campus closed down in March, he also jumped in to support fellow students, especially those in the first-generation and lower-income communities.
Iqbal organized Quincy House committee events, including a note-writing campaign to better connect students and dining-hall workers, and then quickly mobilized the community for farewell activities amid the spring’s campus closure. She has also worked from afar to strengthen House connections during the pandemic through a pen-pal program and virtual movie and game nights.
