20 Temple students get scholarship surprise

Media Outlet: 


Twenty Temple School of Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM) sophomores vying for a single $10,000 scholarship got a big surprise last night as Steven H. Korman, a real estate executive and recipient of the prestigious Musser Award for Excellence in Leadership from the Fox School of Business, announced that all 20 students were receiving the scholarship -- and that the amount had been raised to $12,000 each. "A huge weight off my shoulders right now," student Carlos Deno said. "I'm still processing it. It's amazing." Korman has chaired STHM's Dean's Council for the past 12 years.
