The awards ceremony occurred May 19 at the
James L. Allen Center on the Evanston campus, where the honorees
- nine in all - received one of three distinctions.
The Schaffner Award, established in 1984 and
named for Joseph Schaffner, co-founder of the men's clothing
store Hart, Schaffner & Marx, recognizes prominent alumni
who have provided outstanding service to the Kellogg School.
The Kellogg Alumni Service Award recognizes the efforts of
graduates who have promoted Kellogg throughout the world and
who have shown their commitment to the school's continued
progress. The Friends of Kellogg School of Management is an
award to honor those who, though not graduates of Kellogg,
have loyally served the school over the years.
This year, Mark R. Goldston '78, chairman,
president and CEO of United Online Inc., and John Gambs '74,
former executive vice president, CFO and member of the management
committee of The Charles Schwab Corp., were recipients of
the Schaffner Award. Alumni Service Awards went to David P.
Bornhoeft '72, president and CEO of the privately held investment

Two Friends of Kellogg School of Management
Awards were also bestowed. John F. Ferraro, vice chairman
of client services at Ernst & Young, and H. Michael Mears,

each earned this recognition.
"The Kellogg School is proud of the efforts
made by these valued members of our community," said Dean
Dipak C. Jain. "Their important contributions are helping
ensure that Kellogg remains in the top echelon of management
leaders. We are grateful for their service and pleased to
honor them with these special awards."
