Horatio Alger Association Honors Honeywell Chairman & CEO David M. Cote and National Scholarship Recipient from New Hampshire

Mr. Cote and Scholar Krissie Davis are recognized by the Association for their courage, resilience and commitment to higher education

WASHINGTON, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans, Inc., a nonprofit educational organization honoring the achievements of outstanding individuals and encouraging youth to pursue their dreams through higher education, will induct David M. Cote, chairman & CEO of Honeywell and a New Hampshire native as a lifetime Member in April, while also rewarding one deserving New Hampshire student with its prestigious Horatio Alger National Scholarship. Association Members and Scholars are selected based on their determination to persevere and the success they have achieved despite innumerable adversities.

Named for renowned author Horatio Alger, Jr., who wrote about the merits of hard work, courage and honesty as the means to success, Horatio Alger Association was established in 1947 to uphold these tenets, which are core to the American Dream. To further its mission, individuals who demonstrate initiative, resilience and excellence in their lives, such as Mr. Cote, are inducted into the Association annually as lifetime Members.

"Horatio Alger Association Members are leaders who inspire others not by what they have achieved alone, but how they have overcome adversity to accomplish so much," said David Sokol, chairman of Horatio Alger Association.  "In spite of his modest upbringing, Mr. Cote pursued a college education and worked tirelessly, climbing the corporate ladder to be the CEO of Honeywell, a $40 billion Fortune 100 global company. Embodying the key characteristics shared amongst Members of the Association, he is proof that with hard work and unwavering faith in one's self, anything is possible."

Possessing a strong commitment to philanthropy, Horatio Alger Members are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Association's scholarship programs in 2014.  The scholarship programs provide educational assistance to at-risk youth with an admirable commitment to continuing their education and serving their communities. Today, the Association administers one of the nation's largest, privately-funded, need-based scholarship programs in North America, having provided more than $100 million in undergraduate, graduate and specialized scholarships since 1984.  Krissie Davis, a student at Cocheco Arts and Tech Academy from Dover, New Hampshire has been recognized for her exceptional accomplishments with the 2014 Horatio Alger National Scholarship in the amount of $21,000.

"My family always taught me that education was the key to a better life and I truly believe it," said Tony Novelly, president and CEO of Horatio Alger Association.  "This same belief is held by Krissie Davis from New Hampshire, and it will help her to overcome adversity and strive for a better future.  I am honored and proud to reward Ms. Davis for all of her strength and determination – both academically and personally."
