Tufts Alumni

Book Prize

The first Tufts University Book Prize was awarded to Armen Nercessian, a junior at Arlington High School in Arlington, MA, on June 8. The award honors outstanding high school juniors who possess two qualities embodied by all Tufts students: academic excellence and a commitment to service. The award was presented by the Tufts University Alumni Association (TUAA) and funded by three Arlington High School grads: Andrew Castiglioni, A99, Maura Carney, J99, and Dominic Kallas, E99.

"This award would not have been possible without the enormous effort and support of the TUAA president Elliott Lerman, E65," said Castiglioni. "It is our hope that the Tufts Book Prize given at Arlington High School will serve as a model to build upon for many other alumni. The prize enhances the image of Tufts, connects highly qualified prospective applicants to Tufts and provides another way for alumni to become involved in their alma mater."
