Gabriel Zimmerman Award Benefit featuring Shannon Watts
Hosted by Jonathan Klein (Merrill, '89), featuring Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. The Gabriel Zimmerman Memorial Scholarship honors Gabriel "Gabe" Zimmerman (Stevenson, '02, sociology), who died in the January 2011 shooting that killed five others and wounded 13, including Gabrielle Giffords, a U.S. congresswoman representing the Tucson area. Gabe Zimmerman was the first congressional staffer in history to be killed in the line of duty.
Gabe had an uncanny ability to connect with his fellow human beings and had a profound impact on all those who knew him. His story lives on in all those he touched. The scholarship was established to support undergraduate students in the Division of Social Sciences who, like Gabe, are passionate about social issues and committed to public service. The scholarship endowment currently provides for one $2,500 award to an outstanding student each year. With your help, the endowment will grow to provide broader and deeper support to worthy students.
