The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Business recognized record donor support with scholarships worth more than $200,000 during its 14th Annual Scholarships and Awards Program this spring.
Awards were presented to approximately 100 students pursuing degrees in accounting, business administration, computer management and information systems, economics and finance, and marketing.
School of Business Interim Dean Tim Schoenecker, PhD, expressed gratitude for the generous donors who play a vital role in student success.
“We appreciate our donors’ friendship and generosity,” he added. “It is crucial that we continue to secure scholarships, both annual and endowed, to attract and retain outstanding students by offering the highest quality business education.”
The program’s guest speaker was Robert Schwartz, senior vice president of retail banking at TheBANK of Edwardsville and SIUE School of Business Advisory Board member.
