The Brown Foundation proudly announces that two Brown Scholars, Joshua Korb and Mark Sterling, were the 2021 Student Award recipients of the Brown Foundation-Earl Rudder Memorial Outstanding Student Award. The Brown-Rudder Award was established in 1970 as the highest award bestowed on a graduating senior at Texas A&M University. No more than two Brown-Rudder awardees are selected at Texas A&M each year.
The award honors the outstanding senior student who exemplifies the leadership, patriotism, fortitude, courage, humility, love of Texas A&M University and willingness to uphold the principles for which Texas A&m stands.
Congratulations, Joshua and Mark!
