From 1974 until 1992 Scott Maynes was a Professor in the Department of Consumer Economics and Public Policy, what is now known as Policy Analysis and Management. Upon his passing in 2007, Professor Maynes left the Department of Policy Analysis and Management with a generous endowment. To honor his commitment to our outstanding students the department developed this annual $2000 award for a top graduating senior.
This year's recipient is Elyse Winer. In addition to her stellar academic performance, she was selected because of her continued service to the PAM, to Cornell, and broader communities. Between her leadership developing Cornell’s chapter of Changemaker Chats and her commitment to numerous public health initiatives, she provides an excellent example of what one can accomplish with a PAM education.
