Ladich, Gerald P. Book Award
The Gerald P. Ladich Book Award was established in 2013 with a gift made by his daughter, Marlene C. West, in honor of Mr. Ladich's legacy and lifelong pride of his alma mater, The University of Akron. Mr. Ladich was a lifelong learner and valued the education he received at The University of Akron, as well as life lessons that came from being in the business world and later in his life being an entrepreneur.
Donated funds for The Gerald P. Ladich Book Award will offer assistance to deserving students enrolled full time at the University who are majoring in business.
A selection committee from the College of Business Administration and the Office of Student Financial Aid will consider students based on socio-economic factors, full-time enrollment status, and GPA. Continuing students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, and first-year students must have a minimum high school cumulative GPA of 3.25.
