Adam C. Hansmann, a senior finance and economics major from Cincinnati, and Amber R. Lattner, a senior management consulting major from Montrose, Pa., have been named recipients of the 2009 Eugene D. Fanning Scholarship at the University of Notre Dame.

Hansmann and Lattner were selected by the faculty of the Eugene D. Fanning Center for Business Communication in Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business for excellence in communication skills and exemplary personal characteristics. Six finalists were selected and the two winners were determined based on faculty interviews.

The scholarships include a credit to each student’s tuition account with the University and a commemorative pewter plate. The award, funded by donations from Notre Dame‘s Business Advisory Council, honors the life and work of Eugene D. Fanning, a Chicago businessman and investor who taught business communication courses as a guest instructor in the business school from 1989 to 1995.

Hansmann and Lattner are the 27th and 28th recipients of the scholarship, which was established in 1995. More information on the scholarship and the Fanning Center is available on the Web at
