BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Marc D. Zimman of Reston, Va., has been selected by the Bowdoin College Economics Department to receive the Dorothy Haythorn Collins Award for 1997.

The award, which is administered by the Society of Bowdoin Women, is given annually to the student in the junior class to be honored for academic and general excellence in his or her chosen major. It was established in 1984 with funds bequeathed to the Society of Bowdoin Women by the estate of Dorothy Haythorn Collins and her family.

The award includes a certificate of merit and a book presented to Zimman at the society's luncheon. It also provides $1,000 worth of books to the Bowdoin College Library. The books are selected by Zimman with the concurrence of the Economics Department faculty.

Zimman has been on the dean's list and has been a James Bowdoin Scholar. He served as vice president of his class during his first year at Bowdoin and has since served as vice-chair of the Student Executive Committee and as a student representative to the College's Board of Trustees. He is majoring in economics and government.
