Summers in Cache Valley provide an incredible environment for rest and reflection,
and this summer, following a late and wet spring, is no exception. The valley is as
green as I can remember this late into the year, and the campus is playing host to
lots of visitors from around the world.
In this month’s Huntsman Post, we highlight achievements reflecting three of our strategic
pillars. A student team from our Management Information Systems Department, and Dr.
Dan Holland, Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship, demonstrated outstanding analytical
rigor, with the students taking second place at the Association of Information Systems
Student Chapter Leadership Conference and Competition held at Indiana University,
and Professor Holland publishing research that furthers our understanding of how entrepreneurs
approach opportunities. Huntsman alumnus Kaden Comadena, a recent graduate of our
school, demonstrated incredible entrepreneurial spirit and ethical leadership as he
raced across the Sahara, completing a six day, 159-mile race commonly known as the
toughest footrace on earth.
I am so proud to be associated with Kaden, Dan, and our MIS students. If these achievements
are their version of rest and reflection, then we are indeed holding true to our motto
to dare mighty things.
