Annual Celebration Celebrates Cameron Student Work

Cameron Student Work

Students at the University of St. Thomas – Cameron School of Business were recently honored for their hard work at the annual CSB Honors Convocation and Graduation Celebration in May.

The annual event at Cameron took place this year on May 19, showcasing the work of more than 100 exception students at the CSB, including scholarship recipients, new honor society members, showcase award recipients and student leaders.

After an opening prayer and inductions into the honor societies—Beta Gamma Sigma and Omicron Delta Epsilon—both the Showcase Awards and Distinguished Alumnus Award were announced.

The winner of this year’s Distinguished Alumnus award was Denise Castillo-Rhodes, MBA ’92, whose hard work and leadership led her to a role as the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Texas Medical Center. Thanking Cameron for the honor, Castill-Rhodes offered students an inspiring keynote address which discussed the connection between happiness and being a lifelong learner.

“It was an honor to listen to what she went through as a student,” said Barbara Bordon, another of the celebration’s honorees, of the keynote address. “I think it is very helpful to listen to the stories of other people.” Bordon, an Argentina native who graduated from Cameron with a Masters in International Business, was honored for her work on her capstone projects, which explored targeting new and emerging markets.

Another student honored at the celebration this year was Alexander Hoang, honor society inductee in Accounting and recipient of the T.R. Reveley Memorial Scholarship Award. Of his time at Cameron, Hoang said: “the accounting professors were knowledgeable and able to help connect me to the accounting world.”
