Awards Ceremony at Terry Recognizes Alumni

Gold medal

University of Georgia Terry College of Business hosted the annual Alumni Awards and Gala on April 25. According to the website, the event is the college’s “signature event.” The event serves as a fundraiser for the college as well.

The Alumni Awards held their inaugural event in 1964. The Outstanding Young Alumni Award was added to the ceremony in 1985 in order to recognize alumni under 35 years old who have “demonstrated achievement, and show a promising future in business.” The winners of the awards are selected by emeritus members of the Terry College Alumni Board.

The winners are given a Waterford Lismore Essence Vase. According to the award event’s website, “This stunning angular vase is made of hand-crafted, fine crystal patterned with a more modern incarnation of Lismore’s signature diamond and wedge cuts. Waterford Crystal is of the finest quality and is sought after by collectors and connoisseurs around the world. Each piece of Waterford is watermarked with the word ”Waterford”—a signature indicating the name of the finest crystal in the world.”

This year, the winner of the Outstanding Young Alumni Award was David Fischer, a rising star at AloStar Bank of Commerce. Two Distinguished Alumni Awards were given this year. The two winners were Kevin Marsh and Elisha Finney. Marsh is currently Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SCANA. Finney is Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Varian Medical Systems.
