Ms. Abby Darer-Rosenwald
The Norman Darer Memorial Class of '53 Scholarship was created in 2003 as a way for graduates to commemorate their fiftieth anniversary by giving back to Baruch and its deserving student body, for the excellent education they received tuition-free. Norman Darer was the star of the Class of '53. Norman Darer's enormous contribution as a student and his history of accomplishments as an alumnus inspired the Class of '53 to name this award in his memory. While attending City College, Norm walked away with virtually every imaginable scholastic and political prize that was available: President of the Student Council, Chairman of the Inter-Club Board, Sigma Alpha, the honor service society, Beta Gamma Sigma, the Phi Beta Kappa of business schools. It was no accident that Norm was selected to be on Bloomingdales' first junior executive training squad—at a time when it was difficult for City College grads to even get a sales job there. Norm was accepted for admission to the Harvard Business School and graduated with distinction. He was the first Lieutenant of the US Army and quickly rose through the ranks of CBS, starting as a radio advertising salesman and ending as President of CBS Publishing. In 1973, he passed away at the age of 41, leaving his wife Abbey and their two children, Pamela only 4 and Jonathan only 2.
