Jeremy Podany, Director of The Career Center at Colorado State University, his wife Wendy, and their extended family believe in all students having the opportunity to succeed. They have set up this fund in honor of Jeremy's grandfather, George Podany (1919 – 2006). George was one of 11 children in a poor working class family. He quit high school at age 16 to work in a tailor shop, in order make pants for his 10 siblings. After serving in the military and World War 2, George returned to learning, and eventually achieved a master's degree in Education. As a teacher and government employee, he specialized in vocational education, where he helped individuals with their future employment.

George was also a contributor to racial reconciliation movements in the Flint Michigan High School System during the 1950's and 1960's, helping multiple staff of color get hired as teachers and administrators. After retirement, George and his wife Lois spent 21 years volunteering at a lower income elementary school. He passed away in 2006, and was remembered for his military service, his generosity, and his kindness toward youth.

The purpose of the Fund is to honor George's commitment to education, service, and helping people achieve their goals. The awards will help students purchase appropriate interview attire. Please help our students dress for success.
