Herman L. Reese Community Service Award

Dr. Herman L. Reese with his wife Rosemary and daughter Renita.

The Herman L. Reese Community Service Award was created in 1985 by Rosetta Gooden, a former senior associate dean of Emory College admission. This award commemorates and honors Reese, who served as the director of financial aid at Emory. He is best remembered for his dedication to students and for his commitment to providing not only as much financial assistance as possible, but also vocational opportunities and a fatherly concern for academic and personal success.
