2007 YALE CLUB/SETON BOOK AWARDS The Yale Club of New Haven welcomed the 2007 Yale Club/Seton Book award winners, their families, and their guidance counselors to the campus on October 16. Thirty-eight local high school seniors received awards at a ceremony held at Davenport College. The awards (two books one for the student and one for the student's school library) were made possible by a gift from the late Yale alumnus Fenmore R. Seton 38 and his wife, Phyllis Z. Seton. They are awarded annually to high school students chosen by their schools at the end of junior year for their outstanding personal character and intellectual promise. The program included a discussion of life at Yale with current students as panelists; a question and answer period; a tour of the campus for students and families; an opportunity for counselors to meet with a Yale admissions officer: and lunch in the Davenport College dining hall. The event was sponsored by the Yale Club of New Haven with assistance from the Yale Admissions Office and the Yale Office of New Haven and State Affairs.
