MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced its CEO, Russell Ellwanger has been selected to receive the Ruppin Academic Center Honorary Fellowship Award in a ceremony held at the Ruppin Academic Center in Israel.  Mr. Ellwanger was chosen for his business achievements with Israeli-based TowerJazz, a multinational organization with semiconductor manufacturing facilities on three continents and sales offices worldwide. He was also selected for his personal stature and his contribution to Israel as a leading industrialist and a visionary for TowerJazz's social responsibility principals and community service charter: 'Educational and vocational development with a focus on gender equality and minority integration.'

Together with Mr. Ellwanger, the Ruppin Honorary Fellowship Award will be given to Nobel Prize Laureate, Prof. Roger D. Kornberg of Stanford University Medical School. The award is conferred to local and international personalities that in the Center's view can serve as a role model to its graduating students, inspire them and expand their horizons at this crucial moment as they step out of the academic world into "real" life. Each of the awardees is chosen for his or her uniqueness and contribution to the society in general, and to Ruppin's focal areas of expertise, in particular. The award ceremony is held annually at the Ruppin Academic Center towards the end of each academic year and is the highlight of the annual graduation event, conferring honorary degrees as the highest tributes offered by the Center.

One of Ruppin's leading banners in which they are unique in the Israeli academic landscape is immigration and social integration – in response to Israel's most challenging socio-economic issue and one of today's most significant global phenomena. Simultaneously, the Center strives to cultivate a new generation of leaders who possess high skills and knowledge, moral conscience, social involvement and environmental awareness, virtues that are necessary for a better civil society. Among Ruppin's previous Honorary Fellowship recipients are Israel's President Shimon Peres, Prof. Daniel Kahneman (Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics), and others.

"We are proud to bestow the Honorary Fellowship award to Russell Ellwanger, who we see as a role model to moral and professionalism to our graduate students," said Prof. Shosh Arad, President of the Ruppin Academic Center. "Mr. Ellwanger is a first class businessman, quality manager, a man of vision and inspiration, who manages to combine the business world with community contributing as a way of life, and on top of that undertook a personal challenge by choosing Israel as his home and focus of his life. We selected him for that range of aspects that are fully aligned and connected with the Ruppin Academic Center content focus: global business administration, social integration and social involvement."

"I am extremely honored to be among the notable recipients of this prestigious award – not only for the recognition of TowerJazz's worldwide business achievements, but importantly for the community and social awareness aspects of the award which are of personal significance to me," said Russell Ellwanger, TowerJazz CEO. "Our social responsibility plan includes specific goals to inspire, develop and provide opportunities for under-represented populations. As the fastest growing global foundry, it is essential that we continue to foster a mentality that goes beyond our employees to promote and nurture a social agenda that strives to increase diversity and equity within our respective worldwide communities."
