Sponsored by the Tanaka Ikueikai Educational Trust to foster multi-cultural awareness, it is given to a graduating senior chosen by the faculty for outstanding academic performance and abiding commitment to international understanding.

Annie (as she was better known on campus) graduated cum laude with a degree in international relations and mathematics on the finance-actuary track. She was active with the campus Green Team environmental group, the International Student organization, Rotoract and the Campus Activities Board. She has been accepted to graduate school and plans to secure employment abroad, aspiring to work someday for the United Nations.
