Congratulations to Ivan Dzakovic (A 07), the winner of the first part of the 2009 Alumni Recruitment Competition! Ivan, who won an i-Pod in the second part of the 2008 Alumni Recruitment Competition, recruited 10 students and has won $200 for his recruitment efforts.
Upon hearing the news that he won the first part of the competition, Dzakovic decided to donate the $200 as a gift to the Alumni Scholarship Fund because “in these turbulent economic conditions each dollar is useful, especially for education.”
Dzakovic, who hails from Serbia and currently works in the Faculty of Economics at the University of Belgrade, informs his students about TFAS International programs and encourages them to apply because he wants to give them “the best opportunity to satisfy their professional ambitions and to develop themselves in both private and professional ways.”
According to Dzakovic, being a TFAS alumnus enables him to “follow the mission and vision of our murdered Prime Minister Dr. Zoran Djindjic while also helping Serbia’s best students to improve and to perfect their views, thoughts and attitudes about their lives and careers.” He considers TFAS International programs to be “the most prestigious ones in the world” and therefore considers them the best places for his students to accomplish the mission of Dr. Zoran Djindjic.
Thank you to Ivan and to everyone who participated in the first part of this competition – including Anar Quliyev of Azerbaijan and Gilberto Obijo of the Dominican Republic who each recruited 5 students – alumni helped recruit over one hundred and twenty five outstanding applicants! Keep up the good work and don’t forget that there is another $200 gift certificate for the winner of the second half of the competition!
