Pamplin honors alumni during virtual 2020 Pamplin Awards
November 16, 2020
Four alumni and one business were honored recently at the virtual 2020 Pamplin Awards. The Pamplin College of Business handed out awards for Mentorship, Rising Alum, Ut Prosim, and Corporate Ambassador.
The awards were initiated by the Pamplin Society, which was re-activated in 2016 to enhance alumni engagement by recognizing alumni contributions. The society’s awards team created the criteria and nomination process and recommended the award winners for the dean’s endorsement.
