| Carrie Ottum

Each year, the College of Business management faculty and staff honor graduating students for their scholarship, leadership, and community service by awarding the Outstanding Management Student and Distinguished Management Student awards. This year, Grant Brotherton and Irene Eigner, were chosen for the Outstanding Management Student Award for the 2022-2023 year.

Brotherton graduated with a B.B.A. in operations and supply chain management, marketing minor, and leadership studies certificate.

Eigner graduated with a B.B.A. in human resources management. 

The five “Distinguished Award” winners, also very deserving of being recognized, each received one first-place vote from the management faculty and academic staff. Congratulations to the following students:

  • Emily Annis, operations and supply chain management
  • Gianna Hoppenjan, operations and supply chain management 
  • Nathan Lemons, operations and supply chain management 
  • Jordan Rettig, accounting and entrepreneurship 
  • Emily Richardson, management

To be considered for the Outstanding Management Major Award, students had to earn a 3.5 GPA or higher and also excel outside of the classroom.  Management faculty and academic staff reviewed the qualifications of students based on initial nominations and reviewed each student's accomplishments.  In addition to looking at engagement in the classroom, the group also took into account internships, study abroad experiences, leadership roles, student organization involvement, and community service. 

For more information about the award, contact Dr. Scott Lester, professor of management and marketing.
