Traditionally, the Trulaske College of Business has recognized influential and successful members of its community with a luncheon held on campus. In spring 2021, our event was held in virtual format to ensure the health and safety of our participants during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Congratulations to this year’s honorees. We applaud your accomplishments and thank you for your ongoing contributions to and support of Trulaske!
