The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) has named Annalee Perez ’17, of Dunster House, and Brittany Wang ’17, of Quincy House, the 2016 David and Mimi Aloian Memorial Scholars for “honoring the value of House life.”

In addition to serving in other roles on the House committee, Perez, of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, spearheaded the Big Moose and Little Moose mentoring program that pairs newly arrived sophomores with juniors and helped organize Senior Common Room dinners, Dunster Downtime, and other social gatherings to promote inclusion.

House committee co-chair Wang, of Southlake, Texas, spread awareness of mental-health issues by connecting fellow students with Quincy Wellness Tutors. She also instituted Quincy Quarnival, an evening of games, to build a sense of community.
