The Department of Economics is pleased to recognize economics major Tony Juhasz, who was acknowledged by the Military and Veterans Resource Center with the 2017–18 MVRC Military-Affiliated Student Award among undergraduates. Juhasz currently is president
of the Military Philanthropic Organization, a group he founded in spring 2017. With the goal of giving back to veterans in the local communities, the nonprofit MPO boasts 45 active student members and engages in numerous outreach activities ranging
from lawn mowing to remodeling, in addition to various fundraising efforts.
Furthermore, Juhasz and a business partner operate the American Philanthropic Apparel Company, which devotes the profits from its production and sale of shirts to assisting homeless veterans and veteran organizations. The American Philanthropic Apparel
Company was the winning entry in the inaugural University of Pittsburgh Business of Humanity Competition in fall 2017.
