    The Arents award is named for George Arents, a successful manufacturer who served on Syracuse University’s Board of Trustees from 1930 until his death in 1960. Among his many legacies to the University is a fund he endowed in 1939 to provide the George Arents Award, an annual honor recognizing SU alumni for their extraordinary achievements.
