An award-winning day

Today I went to a luncheon that was held on the ninth floor of the George S. Eccles Business Building to recognize award-winning people within the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. This year we have earned some impressive awards. For example, Frank Caliendo is our Teacher of the Year but he also is being recognized with the Robins Award for Professor of the Year. Only one professor from all of USU earns that honor each year.

If any of you know Frank, who is in the photo just below this post, you know he is unbelievably smart and yet he'll always make time for you. He's exactly the kind of guy you want to see win an award. Very humble. Doesn't he look noble in this shot? The other person in the picture is Dean Douglas D. Anderson. He's the kind of guy you'd want to get an award from. He knows stuff. Lots of stuff.

Chris Martin, a student in economics and political science is this year’s Robins Award for Man of Year. This award is given annually to only one USU student who has made broad significant achievements and contributions to the university during the previous year. Chris is that student.

It seems like every time I open my inbox there’s news in there about someone at the Huntsman School of Business being recognized with an award. And they aren't trivial awards either. Do you think I should offer to put up everyone else’s awards on my wall? That would be very cool and impressive. It could be sort of a basement hall of fame?

Take this link to see some of the other awards or students, faculty and staff have earned this year. It’s an impressive list.
