The Golden Apple Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that believes that every child deserves excellent teachers.

"By helping to recognize, prepare and support such leaders, it is our belief that there is no limit to their students' potential," says Elaine M. Schuster, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Foundation. "In recognizing the profound impact of teachers like Mr. Hollander, we realize that it is also appropriate to honor the institutions that played a role in their development... As an institution that seeks to inspire the best in its students, DePauw University should be proud of this graduate who represents your school so well."
