The award is presented in honor of longtime ISI friend Rich DeVos, co-founder of Amway and owner of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise.

Hoilman, a Politics, Philosophy, and Economics major, has been a vital leader of student life during her time as an undergraduate. “Carly took on leadership of the online school newspaper, The Empire State Tribune (EST), early in her college career and has expanded its operations,” said Paul Glader, associate professor of journalism and director of the Phillips Journalism Institute at King’s.
“She was instrumental in launching a regular YouTube broadcast related to the EST called The Weekly Bull,” Glader continued. “She’s also spear-headed efforts to publish a bi-annual magazine from the EST. She’s taken on summer reporting internships. These are exactly the kinds of journalism moves we are proud to see our students making.”
The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, founded by journalist Frank Chodorov, William F. Buckley, and other early conservative and libertarian intellectuals in 1953, seeks to revive the American ideals of individual freedom and personal responsibility by developing principled leaders in all corners of American society, including higher education, public service, the media, and business and finance.
