“Graduating senior Chase Whittaker created a nonprofit dedicated to helping vulnerable populations in Zambia, Mexico and San Diego.
When Chase Whittaker crosses the stage for two separate commencement celebrations this weekend, his family sitting in the audience won’t be the only ones beaming with pride. On the other side of the world, dozens of students and teachers in Zambia will be celebrating his achievement.
During Whittaker’s time at San Diego State University, he made a difference in many people’s lives near and far. SDSU is recognizing his efforts with the 2018 Zahn Spirit of Innovation Award, given annually to a graduating senior for exceptional entrepreneurial achievement.”
