The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) has named Fariba Mahmud ’22, of Winthrop House, and Courtney Rabb ’22, of Eliot House, as the 2021 David and Mimi Aloian Memorial Scholars for thoughtful leadership and enriching the quality of life in their Houses.

House Committee leader Mahmud, of St. George, Utah, has been the driving force behind Winthrop’s anti-racism advocacy, creating the ThropDates and Lion Buddies programs, along with activities that support the Black Lives Matter movement. Beyond House life, Mahmud also served as co-president of the South Asian Association and community outreach intern for the Harvard College Women’s Center.

Rabb, of Morgantown, West Virginia, co-chairs the House Committee and has fostered a sense of community through activities that include: coordinating a Housing Day video, creating the Big Sibling-Little Sibling program, and helping to lead an Eliot Faculty Roundtable and initiate a fundraising campaign for the Black Lives Matter movement. In addition, Rabb has served as treasurer of the All House Committee, peer adviser for the applied mathematics concentration, and as a member of the women’s rugby team.
