On September 11, 2001, Fordham lost one of its most promising alumni. David H. Winton (CBA ’94) was a bank analyst for Keefe, Bruyette & Woods in the World Trade Center and died in the attacks. His mother, Joan Winton, immediately endowed the David H. Winton CBA ’94 Memorial Endowed Scholarship.
In January, Mrs. Winton added to her son’s legacy with a financial gift to create the David H. Winton Fellowship Program. Each Winton Fellow will work with a Fordham professor to prepare research for publication and to network with professionals in his or her field of study.
“Although he graduated in 1994, Dave never left Fordham,” said Mrs. Winton. “He was always available to serve the University in any way possible.”
At his graduation, Winton received the CBA Alumni Association Award as the senior “whose overall record … exemplifies the best in the college … a model of what students should strive to be.” He was a member of the Globe International Business program and chief executive officer of the student-run Fordham Federal Credit Union, which doubled its assets under his management.
“[Dave] took on major responsibilities at the credit union and led the team that restored it to a healthy financial condition, while still maintaining his academic obligations,” said Sharon P. Smith, Ph.D., dean of the Fordham Schools of Business. “In everything Dave did, he brought enormous dedication, the highest standards of integrity and a wonderful sense of humor.”
Daniel P. Fedeyko (CBA ’05), a finance major with a 4.0 grade-point-average, was the recipient of the David Winton Scholarship, awarded for the first time last year. Fedeyko, currently a finalist for a Fulbright scholarship, recently accepted a position with JP Morgan.
