Dr. Parson received the Service Award as acknowledgement of her many avenues of service, especially in the area of diversity and inclusion, not only to the College of Business but also at the University Level.
Mr. Langdon is the first recipient of the new Spirit of Walker award which recognizes one faculty and one staff member who most exemplify the Walker College core values and bring positive, significant recognition to the college and university. In one of the nomination letters that recounted Greg’s energy, enthusiasm and commitment to the students the nominator said, “I think of Greg as Yosef’s little brother.”
We in the Brantley Center are so proud of Jamie and Greg and feel privileged to work with them every day!
