College of Business and Economics Hosts Awards Ceremony

APRIL 25, 2008--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Business and Economics named 2007-08 award recipients at its annual awards reception April 21.

The Rochelle Junkman Seymour Award was given to Hans Hage, a business administration major with emphasis in management and information systems from Hudson. The Gilbert N. Smith Award was given to Barry Eggert, a business administration major with an emphasis in economics from Shawano. The awards are given to the highest GPA in the college and the highest GPA in economics, respectively.

In addition to recognizing CBE students who received the Chancellor's Award for Excellence and Honors Program graduates, the college recognized and inducted members into Beta Gamma Sigma at the reception. Beta Gamma Sigma is a business management and administration honor society for business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive.

New this year was the recognition of students in the ROTC Program at UWRF with Cadet Excellence Awards in Military Science Leadership. The college also awarded numerous scholarships and recognized students who received or will receive senior merit awards at the fall 2007 and spring 2008 graduation ceremonies.
