The Gamma Iota Sigma student group at App gathered to cheer on the AppState wrestling team in their match against Duke on Tuesday, January 25. Several students on the team are risk management and insurance majors or are pursuing careers in insurance including Jon-Jon Millner and Will Formato.
Two risk management and insurance professors, Dr. Lori Medders and Professor Austin Eggers, were also recognized during the match as part of “Professors Day”.
