JOHN BLODGETT, MBA ’84 PEER AWARD

The John Blodgett Peer Award was established by the Class of 1984 in memory of their classmate, John Blodgett.  John was a student who was always willing to help his fellow classmates, both in and out of the classroom. His support and friendship enhanced the Johnson experience for many. In honor of John, each year the entire first-year class selects a second-year student who has made a significant contribution to the first year class through a formal or informal teaching, advising or coaching role.
